Rotherhithe Photographs

Images from “Rotherhithe Photographs” were first published in the legendary “Creative Camera” magazine in 1975, and were described as “a report from someone who is unqestionably one of the major talents among British photographers”.

Unseen for many years, the photographs are a personal documentation of the south London docklands: a cut-off, self sufficient, largely working-class society, seen between the closure of the docks which had been the area’s “raison d’etre”, and the consumerist redevelopment of the later Thatcher years.
