Hackney Central

By wandering aimlessly, all places became equal…

Mare Street, Hackney, E8

…and it no longer mattered where he was.

Mare Street, Hackney, E8

On his best walks he was able to feel that he was nowhere.

St John-at-Hackney, Lower Clapton Road, Hackney, E5

And this, finally was all he ever asked of things…

Mare Street, Hackney, E8

…to be nowhere.

Brett Road, Hackney, E8
