Then and now: shopfronts 1988 revisited
Via this review of the East End shopfronts exhibition happening now in Tower Hamlets, I came across this incredible site which is the work of Lady Lamo and her colleague Alabama. It retraces the steps that Alan Dein took in 1988 and documents what has become of the shops he photographed. The result is absolutely fascinating, well researched and worth a peruse.
