Great Eastern Bear presents… the launch of ‘The Marshes’ by Samuel Wright and Josh Lustig 27th June

Hackney Marshes are city and wilderness. They are wild and grubby, empty and teeming with rubbish and stories. ‘The Marshes’ brings together images by Josh Lustig and text by Samuel Wright, in an unconventional design that lets the photographs and writing interact and interweave throughout. As sprawling and untamed as its subject, this is a book designed to be explored, played with, and re-read.

“Sometimes something would catch fire inside them and they’d run like dogs, in huge looping curves over the brown grass, screaming.”

‘The Marshes’ is the first publication from Tartaruga Press, available in a strictly limited pressing of 300 numbered copies only.

“On quiet evenings, when the birds pause, and the traffic stops, and the boy next door turns off his Xbox, I can hear it rotting.”
