The London Development Agency has proposed a 'Masterplan' for Crystal Palace Park - a protected, Grade II* listed Metropolitan Open Land in South London. In summary, the redevelopment plans include remodeling of ground levels and landscaping, the removal of a number of existing features, the construction of new visitor attractions and, controversially, some residential development within currently public parkland. Over the past few months I have photographed the park and the people who use it. I felt drawn to the big green urban environment; how it is woven into the suburban landscape between main roads and sprawling housing estates. I set out to document this extraordinary space - hovering between past and future, preservation and regeneration.
