This June, Roman Road is being transformed into a free public photography exhibition. There are fourteen unique displays in local shop windows from 33 – 353 Roman Road, alongside a showcase at Four Corners Gallery. Discover both the rich past and buzzing present of our historic East End street.
You will find an array of photographs documenting community and culture on East London’s vibrant Roman Road. These are powerful images, ranging from classic street documentation to archive prints and contemporary portraiture.
From local people who picked up a camera during lockdown to long-term projects by professional photographers, the selection provides an intimate picture of life on Roman Road.
Local businesses were invited to select their favourite works for display in their own shop windows. Exhibited together, the images will create a public exhibition of photographs seen from the road where they were taken.
Visitors can collect a map from Four Corners and take to the streets to explore Roman Road Stories, supporting their local businesses, discovering local photographers and celebrating the people and places that make Roman Road.
