THERE IS SUCH A THING AS SOCIETY
There Is Such A Thing As Society captures the diverse unification of modern British multiculturalism through portraits of shopkeepers and independently-owned businesses, plus the environments that they work within. The images within this project focus upon the area surrounding Abbeydale Road, located in Sheffield, England. Drawing upon postcolonial research, the body of work identifies how society is changing through cultural integration, and reflects a widening definition of British national identity. However, the underlying danger of gross gentrification of society threatens the uniqueness of such communities, which is why the documentation and celebration of it is important for the prolonging of its future.
