By documenting the cultural landscape of London’s East End in the 1970s, David Hoffman’s images – on display at Galery 46, Whitechapel – highlight the socially diverse nature of the region. Two series are on display: the first features St Botolph’s Crypt, a homeless shelter offering aid to vulnerable groups, whilst the other chronicles Fieldgate Mansion, a row of Victorian buildings home to a multicultural community of creative practitioners. From 18 July.
