Cheapside EC2 is situated in one of the oldest parts of the City of London, it runs from the Bank of England to St. Paul's Cathedral. The photographs were taken on Cheapside and Moorgate between April and August 1996.
The photographs are in one sense a documentation of this area - Through the images, representations of a culture at a point in history. There is an attempt in this work to explore the cultural implications of representation, particularly in relation to colonialism - how control is created through representation or how representation can control or fix a culture.
