This collection of mainly ‘straight’ photography has all been photographed in my local area of Deptford. Drawing on influences from the likes of Chris Dorley-Brown and Zed Nelson who have photographed East London, I have decided to document my area. My area of Deptford shares distinct traces of gentrification which I have photographed and put together in a series. The series is intended to be viewed in order (read from top to bottom on this blog). The last photograph strays away from the concept of ‘straight’ photography and instead plays with photography and reality and was influenced in large part by Noémie Goudal.
