  • 'The Edge' - Creativity Works: Visual Storytelling with Magnum Photos
    'The Edge' - Creativity Works: Visual Storytelling with Magnum PhotosBrief: What's your London? 'The Edge' 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, als
