Additional Information

Henderson’s photographs were not usually carefully arranged, instead they are snapshots of everyday occurrences as they happened - ‘I realised that my objective was usually to ‘cover’ the situation interesting me, which was often of a fugitive nature, and to take it back to my darkroom (like a dog with a bone) and scrutinise it.’

This print is taken from Henderson’s original negative, reproduced here for the first time in print format. In keeping with vintage photography, it features minor imperfections such as scratches and blemishes, and a small additional credit line on the image.

The largest size variation we are able to offer this print in is 80 x 60 cm.

Nigel Henderson (1917 – 1985) was a British photographer and artist. In his early career he worked in avant-garde collages and paintings, exhibiting at the Guggenheim Jeun alongside Pablo Picasso. After serving as a pilot during the Second World War, he studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, where he formed a life-long friendship with Eduardo Paolozzi. Henderson took these photographs of the East End whilst recovering from the trauma of the war, and they capture a vibrant portrait of 1950s East London and its post-war community.
