Photojournalism thread

Postby prophet:marginal on Tue Feb 13, 2018 3:20 pm

The online editions of papers often have some brilliant photo's and collections.

Here is a thread just to collect together them and similar ideas.

Kicking off with East London in the 60's and 70's:

The vanished East End

The one of the Stifford Estate (Stepney) is my favourite. I have it on good authority that Sid Vicious briefly lived there when he was a kid.

One of my favourite photographers, Don McCullin, did a fair bit of work on the East End:

I worked in Whitechapel High Street from 1974-75 when a lot of those photos were shot.
The place certainly was full of characters,most of whom slept on the streets.
In those days places like Whitechapel up to Gardeners corner were amongst the few places where you would encounter tramps (as they were called back then).
These days they seem to be on every provincial high street.
Brilliant stuff on that site, I particularly enjoyed the 'Found Images' section.

Mushy, was Booth House open in those days? Was that the local 'attraction' for them, as such?

EDIT: New collection : The photos that changed America: celebrating the work of Lewis Hine

That one of the blokes constructing the Empire SB... sheesh!
