An intergenerational photography project for local people.  


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

Develop your photography 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 Autumn 2020.  

Please email us if you would like to get involved, or call 020 8981 6111


22 - 24 | 29 - 31 October
11am - 6pm | Thursday - Saturday

Please view our social distancing guidelines before you visit. 

An exhibition by members of the Into Focus group. 

In February 2020, the Into Focus project brought together younger and older people in Tower Hamlets to learn analogue photography techniques. The coronavirus pandemic soon disrupted the project, but members kept on shooting and sharing their work online.

They were recently able to return to Four Corners darkroom to print their photographs. The 36 images on display reveal deep family bonds and experiences of London during lockdown.



This project is generously supported by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets Local Community Fund.  Project partners include Cranbrook Estate Tenants & Residents Group, Clarion Housing and Neighbours in Poplar.
