In 1945, Henderson moved to Bethnal Green in east London. Having received no formal training in photography, he took to the streets with a borrowed Leica camera. His images around this area capture the daily lives of local people, and the experience of living in an urban environment. He referred to his technique as a form of ‘reportage’ or documentary photography.
