With the constant stream of images inflicted on us every day, it's easy to be blasé about color photography. But back in the 1960s, shooting on colored film was expensive and reserved only for special occasions. So, when photographer Chris Dorley-Brown was invited to examine thousands of David Granick’s colour slides, he knew he had stumbled upon something special.
David Granick (1912 - 1980) was a photographer who lived in the East End and documented its changing landscape from 1960 to 1980 using the classic Kodachrome film. These images capture the post-war streets of Stepney, Whitechapel, and Spitalfields, all with stunning clarity.
Discover Granick's previously unpublished photographs in the nostalgic collection, East End in Colour 1960-1980, published this year by Hoxton Mini Press and curated by Chris Dorley-Brown.
