SE1

The project started during the VII Photo workshop at the London College of Communication, when we were assigned to portray the change that is happening in the area around Elephant & Castle. The only rule set was that the project needs to be shot within 24 hours and a 1 mile radius. Since the SE1 is probably one of world’s fastest changing urban areas, I kept photographing for weeks after the workshop. My aim was to show a picture story that was formulaic, constrained, and repetitive, and by that, reflect on the effects of large-scale gentrification and regeneration.

FAMILIAR FACES

The collection of pictures in this gallery is perhaps my most personal project. It started with a simple intention to photograph people in my life. Those that are the closest to me, my family and friends, as well as those whom I may only meet briefly, but have had an impact on who I am as a person. The goal of this project is to create a catalog of faces that I interact with – daily, weekly or just every once in a while.

‘TIS THE SEASON

This series of pictures seeks to be a quiet commentary on human behaviour defined by abundance, consumerism, and dwindling attention span. In a way, a Christmas tree stands directly opposed to these societal and cultural characteristics. While we revere Christmas as a time of togetherness, love and serenity, we treat the physical symbol of Christmas, the Christmas tree, with a ruthless violence. After it serves its purpose, it gets thrown out on the street and discarded. After all, it’s nothing more than a tree. Or is it?
