The Hoxton Basement
North Pole Crush
July 2019 - Hoxton Basement, London.
was a visual representation of
a year-long research project which captured the processes of urban development in Accra, Ghana.
Here, colonial legacies
embedded into the politics of land
and the inequalities of the
contemporary global economy
have given rise to conditions which
challenge the ability to secure
sustainable and just urban futures.
The research explored
two sets of spaces in the city:
a resource periphery and an emerging urban centre.
Shifting Sands speaks to the conjuncture of these spaces as an urban landscape in constant
flux, change and becoming.
All proceeds from the sale of photography
were returned directly to the communities and individuals who facilitated the research.
