London's Hottest Postcode N1C
N1C, the newly regenerated King's Cross Central, has been described as London's Hottest Postcode. I have been photographing the area as it develops to show how the way we live, work and play is increasingly being compromised through the privatisation of space. The effects of lockdown and social distancing on the urban environment question whether the way we presently construct our places is optimum for the times we live in and the utopian future envisaged by those in power. Accessibility and control of public, private or privately-owned public spaces could now change forever. I found inspiration from an Open City Renaissance Tour, Gill Golding’s Welcome to the Fake talk and the text in Argent’s King’s Cross – A Photographic Essay.
