New Britain (1950-1980)

a self initiated investigation into the photographic archives of New Towns around the South of England, I have no connection to these places other than a familiarity with how they appear, feel and smell. When I was sifting through thousands of these images, I began to think about the identity of the UK, what is constructed and what is real. Its 2019 as I write this and that uncertainty about the country’s identity feels more prevalent than ever. I am currently working and thinking about these archives and how I can bring them into the present.

2018 – Ongoing
