Strike a Pose: Portraits from a Hackney Photo Studio


Strike a Pose: Portraits from a Hackney Photo Studio from Hackney Museum on Vimeo.


R.A. Gibson's photography studio in Clapton captured the changing faces of Hackney since the 1950s until it closed in 2013.

This short film shares some of the stories behind the photographs which featured in the exhibition, 'Strike a Pose: Portraits from a Hackney Photo' at Hackney Museum (1 October 2014-17 January 2015)

The unique exhibition showed the many faces of Hackney during the 1970s. It included wedding parties outside Hackney Town Hall from African, Asian and Caribbean families; studio portraits of nurses from the Caribbean in their uniforms; family portraits at home; university graduations and the fashion and styles of the decade.
