London, 2016. Cranbrook Estate, East End.

Continuing to photograph the urban environment and close to home, earlier in the year I spend a weekend in London's East End working closely with Laura Nobel and Robert Clayton exploring the Cranbrook Estate, studying its dream to create affordable housing for all, and meeting some of its occupants, who told me about the English working class reality and their history.

The Cranbrook Estate is a housing estate designed by Francis Skinner, Douglas Bailey and Berthold Lubetkin and was first opened in 1963.
