100 people, 100 years, one community. Renowned photographer Jenny Lewis has spent the last three years photographing the people who live in her neighbourhood, Hackney, covering every age from birth to 100 in chronological order. Paired with revealing quotes from each of her subjects, this tender series captures not just a vibrant pocket of east London, but the many vital moments of connection, contradiction, confusion, growth and reflection that we all experience as we age.
‘Perhaps you think you have a typical, ordinary life. Most of us do. But read even a tenth of the 100 stories that are chattering and rustling away inside here, and you will grasp that there is no such thing.’ – Lucy Davies, from the Introduction
