“As an old building is bulldozed a new construction rises in its place. On this site of creation and destruction, past and future stand for a moment face to face”.

These images were shot for ‘Estate’; a film directed by Andrea Luka Zimmerman about the estate opposite my own in East London.

Go to the film’s website.


“Tracking the passing of Hackney’s Haggerston Estate and wider utopian principles of social housing, Estate offers an unruly celebration of extraordinary everyday humanity. As a 1930s block is bulldozed, a luxury-apartment-complex rises. Challenging tired stereotypes, Estate interweaves intimate long-term observational footage with the residents’ own historical re-enactments and dramatised reveries”.
