Fantastic New Community

The project explores the current housing crisis in London from the perspective of those residents in areas undergoing significant re-development or total demolition - Sweets Way, Carpenter's Road, The Aylesbury, Cressingham Gardens and West Hendon.

The title of the work is taken from an advertising slogan used by developers in Stratford, bordering the Olympic site in 2012. It is used in this context to question what is happening to the existing communities and to document their experiences.

This piece shows some of the images documenting the existing housing, text from developer advertising and features an edited interview with a resident and campaigner, Jasmin Parsons, from West Hendon.

The project is ongoing, the work shown here is still in progress.  Thanks to all who have participated so far.
