Sites of Africa

This work was commissioned by CCCB in Barcelona to provide an overview / document of London and its connection with the African continent today. Although the original intention was to make a reportage I found that the most pervasive element of London is the importance of the ‘document’. Sites of Africa is a photographic document of absent histories, the sites represented were once burgeoning with an African presence which as now disappeared and the sites are now associated with more recent histories.
