Australian photographer Nicola Dracoulis‘ Living in the Middle of Hackney documents the lives of five young people in one of London’s most marginalised suburbs. This series shot in 2015 follows on from Dracoulis’ original 2008 commission to create a series of portraits of teenagers deemed ‘at risk of exclusion’ by virtue of their demographic. A lot has changed in Hackney in the ensuing eight years and Dracoulis found a suburb in the midst of gentrification creating an even greater gulf for those on the margins.
