The East is being redefined. The Olympic fever has put an outcast on the map.
The mainstream is now investing the once despised. It is not the first time the East
has been given a facelift. The continuous migrations, the war and previous
rejuvenations turned this landscape into something both identifiable and adaptable.
The East End was and remains a land of experiments where the individual shapes
his surroundings. 11 artist photographers familiar with its background and morphing
captured its idiosyncrasy through various methodologies. Still the East End cannot
be defined and the proud inhabitants are its essence. The East is not a landmark to
contemplate but a hub to be lived and inspired from.
