101 people, 100 years, one community.

Presented across 100+ metres of Metro Tunnel hoardings, this collection of 101 intimate portraits tells the stories of 101 residents of Hackney, London, at every age from birth to 100. These life-size portraits reveal a neighbourhood up close—the deep sorrows, fierce joys and many contradictions that all our lives contain.

One Hundred Years is an insight into one community in East London, through which the viewer finds connections with their own community—wherever in the world it may be.

This will be the first time that these works will be presented at this scale, providing an opportunity for audiences to explore each portrait in intimate detail.

Jenny Lewis is an award-winning portrait photographer. She has lived in Hackney for 25 years and her work focuses on visual storytelling within her community.
