East London is definitely a much more interesting place than a decade ago – the new vibrance coming out of Shoreditch and Hackney had made the area very popular for all sorts of trendy hangouts.
A Childhood playground
Interestingly, however, it wasn’t for any of these reasons that Sahul and Rachel brought me there. This previously humble part of London was where Rachel spent her childhood, growing up on the slides of Victoria Park and running around the streets of Shoreditch. It was a joy listening to Rachel explaining the various memories right where it happened while composing shots using those stories. Not everything survived through the years, but for that good old slide that stayed the same, its just too much to resist another go on it – this time sharing the moment with her gentleman fiance Sahul from India.
It was a truly magical moment to see them enjoying that nostalgic moment together, and it was my pleasure to have pictured it for them.
