On the streets of London, 'The British Telephone Box' stands battered and beaten; a disused relic from our recent history, still used by a small minority but mainly forgotten. Photographed on a google pixel phone 'An Ode to: The British Telephone Box' is an ongoing project documenting the last few still standing. This is my visual poem.
A selection of these images are currently on show until the end of June 2018 at Dereham Place, Shoreditch, London EC2. Showing street side in a new public space and art platform called 'Outside The Zone' (OTZ).
‘Trace’ is a photographic documentation of the detritus found on the streets in my neighbourhood in London. I like think of these man made objects as artefacts from the year 2015-17. Treated like pieces of evidence, they are not moved, but photographed as found; at close range, magnified, isolating them from their wider surroundings. Graphic and colourful, they draw the viewer in for further investigation. The different textures of concrete giving us an indication of their urban location. Through piecing together these fragments, remains and residue, 'Trace' builds a portrait of us and our daily interaction with our environment - reflecting back an image of ourselves through the things we discard or leave behind.
