Estate of Mind – the book

mdx_20140611_DSCF4267

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 MindThis 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.

How to see the wonders of the Tabard estate? Put one foot in front of the other and perambulate.

There’s now a whole range of apparatus in the park – there’s even concrete ping-pong tables.

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.
