  • A love letter to Croydon zine
    A love letter to Croydon zineThe southern London borough of Croydon has a terrible reputation. Ask almost anyone and they’ll tell you that Croydon is a pit; an ugly, concrete mess with deluded aspirations of wanting to be its own city, “not to mention the crime”.

    Laura Pannack: What does Brexit mean for love?Separation explores the angst and myriad emotions experienced by London-based couples who, as a result of Brexit, have been forced to contemplate separation. With Britain soon to sever its ties with the European Union, tens of thousands of people face the possibility of losing their right to work in the UK, not to mention being forced out of the country that they share with their partner.

Commissioned by Studio 1854, with the support of Ecotricity, the resulting series, titled The Rift: Preston New Road, explores the narratives behind fracking
