[Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).] From the artist: "Hackney Wick sits in East London between the Grand Union Canal, the river Lea and the Eastway A106. I first came across the area in January 2003 when I was photographing the back of billboards. Although I had lived in London for nine years and thought I knew east London well, Hackney Wick threw me; it completely changed my mental map of this part of London."
