In the spring of 2014 I made a book about a council estate in south London.
I’d been walking the estate with the writer Christopher Jones and I ended up with a heap of photographs and a few thousand words which came together in the book Estate of Mind. This formed my final year project for a BA Photography. Now we are looking at finding a way of printing a cheaper version.
Meanwhile it seems a shame to stop photographing the estate so so for now, Estate of Mind continues here.
Indoor and outdoor – public and private. These spaces for living spill over into each other here on the estate .
How many trees on Tabard – does anyone know? The dangerous temptation to document them all. Just in case – here’s number 2.
There’s a short period of around two weeks every spring time when all the trees on the estate burst into blossom. When I saw this I nearly fell over. And then a week or so later it was back to being a regular leafy tree. I’ll have to find out what type it is, but meanwhile here it is in all its glory.
