East End

John Claridge

06. 09. 2016 – 17. 09. 2016

John Claridge began documenting the East End at the tender age of fifteen, with a remarkably sure eye. A book of these photographs came out recently. On this occasion, we are presenting an exhibition of thirty images from the book: the port of London cloaked in mist, its warehouses, cranes and bridges, small local shops, nearly bare butchers’ shops, neighbours, friends, some of the dubious integrity, appealing urchins, dockworkers, beggars. John Claridge will be present at the gallery to sign his book. Not only is he an outstanding photographer, but he is also a master printer, exploiting to perfection the grain inherent in the film. His digital prints resemble timeless engravings. East End is his third exhibition at Mind’s Eye, following Out of Shadows in 2014 and The Hardest Game in 2015.
