Deptford High Street
I moved to London in September 2014 and took up residence in a tiny flat above a coffee shop on Deptford High Street. Deptford is a place of wonder and awe for me. I love the sights and sounds of this street. There's always something wonderfully weird going on at every given time.
I feel completly at home in Deptford, so much so that I decided to buy a medium format camera and try to capture the street on film. I have just started this urban exploration of the street and have chosen to use film with methodology in mind. Film slows me down. It forces me to take my time, consider the frame, the lighting, the movement and the composition much more than digital. When I shoot on film I feel like I'm shooting something I really care about.I'm not sure where I'm going with this project just yet, I'm interested in objects, exchange values and the shopkeepers of the street. I'm looking forward to working out my ideas and shooting much more.
