'This England' is the last collection of black-and-white images created for an exhibition by acclaimed local photographer Colin O'Brien.

About

Colin chronicled the life of ordinary people in London and beyond, in every decade from the post-war years until he died suddenly on 19 August 2016.

He chose in this new compilation to reflect his longstanding but heightened post-Brexit interest in capturing life and location beyond his home city and throughout his country, England. Colin had already selected pictures for this exhibition but he planned to travel to both Liverpool and Newcastle to take some new ones. Sadly, the cannot feature; however, for each picture in his previous exhibition at Unit G Gallery, 'East London Life', Colin relished in explaining a 'last of' story; an irony that would not be lost on him if he could be present.
This exhibition is part of East London photography festival Photomonth
