Event Details

Jessica Strang’s images of Kings Cross taken during 1987 are a reminder of how Kings Cross looked before being given a new lease of life with its redevelopment around the turn of the 21st century. This exhibition documents how the area looked before redevelopment. For some, the images will evoke a memory and for others these photographs of King’s Cross will show an unknown landscape. This is a reflection of the past for us to contrast with our present – an opportunity to see what someone saw before you as a beautiful visual ‘love letter’ to our current times and the future.

Jessica was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, and moved to London in the late 1950s to study at St Martin’s School of Art. She then became part of the Pentagram design group and started documenting London life with a stills camera and developing her own photographs. Jessica passed away in 2021 and this exhibition is curated by friends and family as a tribute to her work and the extensive collection of documentary photographs she has left for us to appreciate the past.
