The main site for the London 2012 Olympics is at Stratford Marsh in the Lower Lea Valley. Peter Marshall started photographing the area 30 years before the games, and the well over 200 pictures in this book form a unique record of the area, much of which has now disappeared. This is a revised edition of the book first published in 2010.
Peter Marshall has been photographing London since the 1970s and had his first one-person museum show more than 25 years ago. His work is in various collections including the Museum of London.
From 1999-2007 he became known around the world for his critical writing about photography as the 'About.com' Photography guide.
He set up his first web site in 1995 and has continued to have a high profile with web sites of his work on the 'Lea Valley', 'London's Industrial Heritage', 'The Buildings of London' and 'My London Diary' as well as the '>Re:PHOTO' blog.
