The Royal Borough of Greenwich commisioned me to photograph 60 of the local residents, workers and patrons for the upcoming Woolwich Creative District.

The woolwich Creative District is a regeneration of the historic military buildings at Woolwich, converting them in to creative spaces.

The creative hub will include large-scale concert venues, rehearsal and studio spaces, offices, places to eat, and a base for internationally acclaimed theatre companies such as Punchdrunk. The flexible space will provide opportunities for public interaction and involvement, training and education, as well as being available for hire for weddings, parties, conferences, community meetings or events. – Royal Borough of Greenwich

We met some incredible people and listened to their stories and memories of the area. I really feel like I got to know the whole area and feel like I’ve gained many friends.
