As part of Creativity Works: Visual Storytelling, we're highlighting each of the photographers who took part

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 However, these depictions of the capital that we’re used to seeing in the media, advertising and the press are outdated.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 Shani's London...

The Uncanny

Uncanny, definition: strange or mysterious, especially in an unsettling way. The Uncanny crosses the familiar and the unknown through exploring the delicacy of perception and the qualities of feeling through aesthetics. Altered realities are created through ambiguous, moody imagery, aiming to enhance the atmosphere, similarly to how senses are heightened. This project describes a significant psychological change to an everyday environment by visualising the effects of how thoughts and feelings can change over time.
