Portraits of Forgotten Mass Consumption
While we no longer need to leave the house to do our weekly shopping, Smithfield, Billingsgate and New Spitalfield Market are unable to sell their stock. According to a report by Transport for London over 700 000kg of unsold products remain weekly between three main wholesale markets in London. "Forgotten Portraits of Mass Consumption" is an exploration of the consequences of modern life on traditional industries. These large-scale spaces were created for mass consumption but are now being replaced through even larger supermarkets. Displayed as a book, this project's intention is to restore awareness of markets that have supplied local shops, schools, Buckingham Palace, restaurants, hotels and prisons with food for centuries.
