Just around the corner from msdm studio, was one of Lea Valley wastelands, running east of Blackwall Tunnel Approach, between Gillender Street and River Lea Bow Creek. Here, a few miles south of the Olympic site, lived homeless people in cars abandoned by the roadside, amidst massive accumulations of urban waste. Early October 2018 we all received news that our homes – from artists’ live/work warehouses to do-it-yourself street-level shelters- would be shut down. As construction teams started moving in, we all found ourselves on the same side of ‘demolition road’. During the last days I kept revisiting the area for final images, always in the company of other visiting  photographers, attracted by the photogeny of the terrain vague, pulled by random beauty of excessive consumption and technological obsolescence.
