Personal project –  Manor House

In the mid 90’s the North London garment industry went into decline, leaving several industrial warehouses in Manor House empty. The landlords started giving out these spaces for creatives to prevent vandalism. Twenty years later, the warehouses remain and what was once a sprawling industrial estate is now a thriving artist community. However, with rising living costs across London and the commodification of warehouse living, many of these communities are now under threat, faced with rising rents and evictions.

The Manor House Project is an ongoing document of the life and the people of Manor House Warehouses since 2012.
