Hackney - A tale of two cities
, © Zed Nelson
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us...
A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens  (1812 - 1870)

[...]The social landscape for an under-privileged teenager growing up in Hackney, one of London’s poorest boroughs, is a million light-years away from the new urban hipsters who frequent the cool bars and expensive cappuccino café’s springing up in the same streets. These worlds co-exist side-by-side but
entirely separate, creating bizarre juxtapositions of wealth and poverty, aspiration and hopelessness. ZN (excerpts)
