Alex Taylor's 'The Market' explores memories created within Covent Garden Market. Introduced by his father, who has worked there for the past 30 years, this 2-year project captures unique moments inside this nocturnal hub. Drawing upon his own unique vision and influences close to him, the imagery created becomes part of recollections of the environment, constructing his own historical document of the market currently inhabited before the new redevelopment. Exploring memory and emotional connection to this location and father and son relationship, this was Taylor's 'coming of age', moving into adulthood and preparing for a future without the market. This works aims to be an archival document that provides an insight of what the market was like at this time.
