What Is Your London?
For many, the idea of London conjures up postcard pictures: the London Eye, Buckingham Palace. However, these depictions of the capital that we’re used to seeing in the media, advertising and the press are outdated. That isn’t the reality for young people living here today. London is nothing without the people that live in it, and each individual has their own story to tell so the participants of Creativity Works: Visual Storytelling were briefed with showing the world what their version of London is, to let the world see their perspective.
This is Jai's London...
Yet Another Day
Yet Another Day examines the relationship between Jai Toor's grandparents as they seek comfort and well-being in their everyday lives. Domestic spaces and the workplace provide an integral setting for this story of a generation who have lived in West London for 40 years. Through tender observation, Toor’s images allow us to view the nuanced themes of compassion and anxiety that occur in family life. His grandparents have a long history of health issues, however this has not stopped them working and overcoming the issues they face. With non-linear narrative, we are able to glimpse a day-in-the-life scenario of two people who are his family.
