Boundaries

Over the summer I spent several days walking the perimeter of the Olympic Park looking at its boundaries. Ten years before a blue construction hoarding separated the land into an inside and outside.  These are a few of the images made that explore how photography can evoke, through traces and memory, what has otherwise gone from the landscape.  


Instone Wharf

London clay excavated from the Crossrail tunnels was removed by barge from Instone Wharf to Wallasea Island in Essex where it was used to create a nature reserve.  In future plans, the wharf becomes a terminus for a new ‘ecologically focussed’ Limmo Park, making accessible a large section of riverine landscape after the Crossrail compound at Canning Town closes.  These images are from the last bend in the River Lea landscape and are part of Walking the Leaway.  



Iceland

I have a new set of photographs from circumnavigating Iceland in June.  If I had the chance to return I would go back to the West Fjords region for the dramatic landscapes and scenery.  But that aside I was mostly interested in the vernacular architecture of Icelandic housing and industrial buildings and some of these photographs will be added to RIBA image library.
