'The greatest transformational story'
This on-going project addresses the debates around the current regeneration and changing landscape of London. Through cropping and careful framing, the work displaces the advertising images, language and environments of new housing construction taking place in the city. Out of their intended context the subjects of the images take on new, self-reflecting deeper meanings. The titles utilise extracted aspirational marketing phrases and rhetoric surrounding the sites of redevelopment. Through the deliberate manner the images are placed together, the work begins to ask questions about the purpose and motivations of the constructions taking place in the city and their socio-political repercussions.
