Famous faces of Hackney grace new artwork
How many can you spot?
READERS with a keen eye will be able to spot the famous faces of Hackney’s past and present in a new artwork.
Joseph Goode, 32, of Hindrey Road, Lower Clapton, created the work, simply titled ‘Hackney’, after being inspired by the borough and its colourful residents.
Joseph said: “There is so much culture & chaos, I struggled to get this much stuff into the drawing.
“An anthropologist would have a field day in Hackney, and there can’t be many places on Earth with this much diversity living by and large, in harmony.

“It’s such an exciting and vibrant place, and it was an interesting exercise to try to capture the borough as it is in 2011.
“I hope that people will look back at these years from now and realise how things have changed.”

The artwork took Joseph three weeks to do and incorporates such locations as Hackney Empire, White Cube Gallery, St. John-at-Hackney Church and Hackney Baths as well as a copy of the Gazette.
The famous faces are of those who were either born in the borough or lived or worked here at some point in their lives.
