Crap Ads for Urban Re-developments

Project site: Crap ads for Urban Redevelopments:

Blog I founded composed of photographs I took whilst cycling around London showing aspirational, crass property development advertisements in London…that only continued to get worse.
A response to a frustration with
– the speculative nature of development
– the way in which character cultivated by present-day city dwellers was used to sell the area to others and in many cases displace the present-day dweller (eg in Brixton)
– and specifically, an particular advert which showed people drinking prosecco gazing upon the Shard plastered on hoardings at the site of the then being dismantled Heygate Estate in Elephant and Castle
