Into Focus

Visit Facebook page


An intergenerational photography project for local people.  


Open to Tower Hamlets residents aged 14–25 and over 50.  

Into Focus is a 12-week intergenerational analogue photography project that’s gone digital during lockdown. Develop your camera skills and collaborate with people from your community with this free part-time course.  

  • Learn how to use a black & white darkroom  

  • Experiment with alternative and unusual photo techniques 

  • Meet people from across Tower Hamlets 

Since launching the project in October we have run photography ‘show and tell’ sessions, experimented with different print processes in the darkroom, and learnt about studio portrait techniques.  

During the Covid-19 lockdown we moved our activities online, exploring the work of famous photographers and sharing our favourite images via Zoom.  

We have more exciting projects in the pipeline for 2021, including online workshops exploring photography techniques and genres, photo walks and a virtual exhibition. 

We plan to get back in the darkroom as soon as it is safe to do so. 


There are a limited number of places available on a first come, first served basis.
