"London Streets : The Monopoly project" is the result of a years photography, visiting over 40 locations and covering more than 70 miles walking and photographing around London. The project features 120+ images showing the highs and lows from each location of the London monopoly board.
The talk covers why the project was started, the approach to finding, shooting, editing and image selection.
We also look at some of the stories that unfolded during the project; from a drugs deal in the West End to why there is a Czech Army T-34 tank just off the Old Kent Road.
The talk also looks at the life the project has taken on, after the photography had finished; including a popular blogpost, the project talks, exhibition and a magazine.
