On the Brink
Today these landmarks have fallen into a state of disrepair, due to neglect by borough councils. I have created these images to highlight the disconcerting visual impact of these decaying buildings. The windows that have been replaced with brick walls symbolise the way in which the social housing market has hit a crisis, a brick wall. At a deeper level, I wanted to show the anguish and powerlessness of communities, with the buildings sadly closing their eyes to the gentrification that surrounds and will replace them. Those bricked up windows shut out a world that no longer has space for them.
