Peckham 2000 to 2020
20 years ago this summer I graduated as a mature student and single parent from Camberwell College of Arts with a Graphic Design Hons Degree. My daughter Daisy was 6 and it feels like a lifetime ago! This year is full of positive reflection.
My final year show was a collection of photographs made into posters of my local area that I had lived, worked and studied in for over ten years. The images focussed on the shop displays, the market traders and the vibrancy of Rye Lane in the heart of Peckham. These were story telling photos, vibrant and colourful, celebrating everyday people and sights of South East London.
Having revisited Peckham to see Daisy who now lives and works in the area, I was excited by the familiar smells, sounds and sights from my time there 2 decades ago. I had an idea to photograph the Rye once again with 20 years between. I plan to visit and photograph the Rye this spring to capture the similarities, changes and positive developments for the local community.
The South London Press printed an article of my story that summer along with a selection of images from my show and this year will be printing the new story along with the images taken spring 2020.
I am currently looking for sponsorship and support for an exhibition in Peckham this summer so please get in touch if you can help.
