'A Portrait of Hackney' is an intimate look at the ever-changing face of Hackney: the complexity, the contradictions, the clash of cultures. Portraits and landscapes are set against overheard snippets of conversations from the area. Zed Nelson has lived his whole life in Hackney - it was here he learnt to ride a bike, took his first drugs and lost his virginity. When he was young this was a place to get away from but now he has fallen back in love with the area.
Zed Nelson is an internationally acclaimed documentary photographer living in Hackney, East London.
