Hackney in the 1970s was raw and vivid: bombed-out houses, kids playing in the streets, factories abuzz with workers. Neil started taking photos while still in school in Hackney and his archive tells a story of dizzying change: dereliction, renewal, political upheaval and cultural assimilation, His images and stories take us on a journey through workshops, street markets and council homes to capture a time and place before technology and gentrification changed local lives forever.
