THE STORY of Stratford’s regeneration because of the Olympic Games has been told in photographs.

Part of a project by Forest Gate photographer Cath Harries, 40, her pictures are being showcased at the Stratford Picturehouse cinema, Salway Place.

A freelance artist, she has been snapping away at the Olympic site for five years and has created a photo diary of its development.

One of the photos charts the building of the Olympic Stadium.

Around 20 are exhibited in the cinema including large showing scenes of Stratford, also including in East London the Rio Cinema in Dalston, graffiti in Hackney and Wilton’s Music Hall in the City.

Her work is on show until November 30.
