Photo Finish

This Four Corners’ project ran from January to March 2010, supporting 16 unemployed Londoners with photographic skills training, mentoring and portfolio development.

Participants explored the theme of East London in the run-up to 2012, focusing on change, construction, urban and human legacy, and daily life.

The project was made possible by a grant from the London Development Agency’s 2012 London Cultural Skills Fund, managed in partnership with Arts Council England.

For a while I worked as a cement mixer, I find these sites amazing.
