This is Whitechapel, 1972

I recently came across Ian Berry’s photographs from 1972 of the people of Whitechapel. He was commissioned by The Whitechapel Gallery to capture everyday life in the local area, and his photos illustrate the social, cultural and economic chances experienced by the people living there.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These photographs were then shown at the Whitechapel Gallery again in 2011 with archive material and documentary  films from the period.
