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 However, these depictions of the capital that we’re used to seeing in the media, advertising and the press are outdated.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 Lourice's London...
The Face Of The People That Need YOU!
Lourice J Ramos is a graffiti artist from Walthamstow in East London. The Face Of The People That Need YOU! is a portrayal of characters from Walthamstow Market, the heart and soul of her home. Growing up around shop-keepers and market traders from a young age, she has witnessed generations come and go. With her personal connection to the community she can ask sensitive questions and gain honest insights, especially with a political issue like Brexit she can explore their fear and anxiety about losing their homes. This collection of pictures presents a community that has stood side by side since 1885, and for the viewer to come face-to-face with people that need them, in the hope that we are willing to listen to their stories.
