'Are You Being Served' by Tom Hunter

Also at the Museum of Childhood is an excellent project by photographer Tom Hunter. Called 'Are You Being Served' it "explores the changing face of east end trade...situational portraits of local businesses on the main road between Bethnal Green and central Hackney provide us with a fascinating record of the diverse proprietors, their premises and their wares". They are fantastic shots that really capture their subjects incredibly well, like frozen moments in time. These are the kinds of images that will be hungrily studied in the future to see what life was like now. Definitely worth seeing for real, rather than tiny pics on the interwbnet, to see all of the detail and nuances that Hunter has captured. See the series, and more of his work here.
