Echoes of the Past – Photo mashups

In September 2016 I began creating photo mashups that overlay old photos onto today’s view of Stoke Newington’s streets. So far I have created nearly 250 such photo mashups. You can view all the mashups here.

‘Echoes of the Past’

In the summer of 2017 Rebecca Odell from Hackney Museum and I discussed the idea of turning some of the mash-up photos into an exhibition in the Hackney Museum and 15 images were selected and printed. The exhibition was titled ‘Echoes of the Past’. It was first displayed in the Hackney Museum, then is moved to the Hackney Archives and it is now on display in the Stoke Newington Public Library.
