About the Book
Photographer and filmmaker, Alan Tucker, has lived in Bow for the last 25 years. During this time the Docklands have been transformed, the Olympic Park has been constructed, and regeneration continues eastwards along the Thames.
This book offers a resident's view of this vibrant and exciting area as it continues to change.
I have lived in London for most of my life. Huge changes are happening to London, but evidence of the past is still with us. I've been documenting the world around me since I was at school. A few years ago I produced a film called "A Picture of East London" with local artist, Gillian Burrows. In it we went behind the scenes to interview some extraordinary Londoners. It is out on DVD.
