Also considering a landscape in flux, Lorena Sanchez Pereira creates large-scale images exploring the regeneration of Hackney Wick in her series Gentricity.

On Saturday 6th October, urban photographer and Director of Urban Photo Fest, Paul Halliday, will be chairing a panel discussion with 3 of the artists from the exhibition, considering the role photography can play in generating new knowledge of the urban.
