Phil Cunningham’s East End Streets

Shall we join Photographer Philip Cunningham for a stroll around the East End streets in 1985?

Henry Moore’s ‘Draped Seated Woman’ on the Stifford Estate

“I began photography by taking pictures of the East End, which was my local area. Then in 1979, when I was at art school, my tutor, Roger Jeffs came down to the East End and we walked around together. Even then, things were changing fairly fast and he urged me to document it, so I got into the habit of taking photos of the place and its people. In 1995, I moved to Suffolk and my documentation of the East End ceased. All the negatives and prints were put away in boxes and forgotten about, until one day I was contacted by the Gentle Author who came to have a look at my pictures.” - Philip Cunningham
