Interview with David George: 'Hackney by Night'
Thursday, December 24, 2015 by londoncitynights
"I like melancholy because it's a choice. It's not like depression. You can choose to be melancholy" says David George, whose new book, Hackney by Night, is a guided tour of a dreaming city.
From the hulking corpses of industry to serenely flowing canals to verdant parks, David George’s Hackney By Night captures a timeless, abandoned and eerie urban landscape, unfamiliar even to long-term residents. His photographs are accompanied by a short story by Karen Falconer: cryptic fragments of text that add equal doses of context and mystery."
