The new photo graphic exhibition at Pogo (August and September 2012) is by Jane Sarre and is titled;
Lea Valley: Fences | Neighbours
A series of photographs that chart change in the Lea Valley from 2008 to 2012. Captured on annual walks around the boundary of the Olympic site these images track the blue fence as it demarcated and closed the site to local usage. They include the neighbouring homes, new constructions and new uses for the valley’s industrial history. Many have watched and recorded the building of the Olympic park; this collection looks outwards to the neighbours overlooking the site. In an area once characterised by industrial grime, graffiti and greenery we see a complex pattern of growth and decline, commerce and community.
