Urban Photo Fest

This year’s Urban Photo Fest is themed (re:) Thinking the Street and opens at Tate Britain on Friday the 23rd October with a keynote address by London photographic artist Rut Blees Luxembourg. On Sunday 25th I am making a small contribution which is to lead a photo walk through my local neighbourhood of London’s Olympic Park and East Village, formerly the Athletes’ Village. The walk is an opportunity to look at the new architecture and parklands and also to consider ideas about the street and public space in this regenerated urban landscape. I spent several days over the summer photographing in and around East Village curious to see how this newly made place is starting to establish itself.
