'The Edge' - Creativity Works: Visual Storytelling with Magnum Photos
Brief: What's your London?
The project was formed through an experimental process of exploring the area around the artist’s home. Focussing on the suburbs – a part of London less observed – the project evolved through a process of making photographs along the rural/urban edges.
The one image chosen to be on display in the exhibition depicts an intersection of the human element with nature, a hint, which leaves the viewer wondering. This resonates with the feelings of the artist, also left wondering about the nature of this part of the city they have formed their life in.
The experimental nature of the project produced a variety of image formats, from literal depictions of the area to digitally augmented images which toy with the liminality of the city’s edge.
The Edge is a personal journey producing photography that reflects the juxtaposition of Londoners’ busy lives with the banality of the city’s periphery, and questions our relationship with that environment.
