The Monopoly Board (1989)
The Monopoly Board was commissioned by The Photographers' Gallery for the second London Project exhibition in 1989. Using the streets of the famous board game as a conceptual structure, the project documented a cross section of the capital city from Mayfair to the Old Kent Road and provides an untypical record of the end of the Thatcher era. Created with a detached, observational viewpoint as an newly arrived outsider, the project records a series of shopfront and street scene details and seeks out the surreal visual humour found in an unfamiliar city.
