The Regent’s Canal in London stretches from Paddington in the West, to Limehouse in the East and travels through most of London. It was designed to ship goods from the docks in the East of London to across the city and to the rest of the country. The stretch in Hackney speaks very much of its industrial past, with warehouses, factories and factories clustered around the water. I love how the use of the canal has changed over the past 200 years and of course now, it’s largely leisure. This view from the canal towpath takes in the eclectic industrial architectural scene, complete with iconic street art by Hackney favourite, TYPE.

It will never be a photographic representation but the spirit of the scene is evident and the very essence of the subject matter is captured in a way that photography never can.
