Its the Urban Art Fair this weekend and I’ll be sitting in the sun (hopefully) on my usual bit of pavement on the corner of Josephine Avenue and Leander Road. So come and say hello and have a look at my new work, feedback (and sales) always welcome.
As the deforestation of the urban forest starts, the gardening activism taking place in the Heygate Estate slowly comes to an end and so is my project of documenting it. Selected images can be seen on my website. For information on The Heygate Estate, its history, its regeneration and displacement of its residents see Heygate Was Home.
Some of my photographs from Interim Gardening series have been published in FLIP magazine this month as part of their winter “Routes” issue. The magazine is available at the following stockists or online on the London Independent Photography website.

Research stage…first roll developed… more to come…I’m currently photographing in the Heygate Estate: main actor in the large-scale regeneration project of the Elephant & Castle area in South London. This series focuses on the current community-led gardening activities/activism which is taking place within the previously emptied 17 acre space. This is following previous work I had developed around the regeneration of London Victorian Cemeteries into alternative urban green spaces. Selected images can be seen on my website.
