Interviews From The Regeneration Of Thamesmead: At The Heart Of The Crystal Expanse (2019) is a documentation of the regeneration of the iconic, brutalist housing estates in Thamesmead, South East London. As the area transitions, this project aims to preserve the voice and experience of residents affected by the demolition and redevelopment of the estate.
In the book, the lived experience of the regeneration is expressed first-hand through four interviews with residents both directly and indirectly affected. These testimonies are encased within the story, At The Heart Of The Crystal Expanse, a photographic narrative that follows the story of a group of explorers who land on a distant planet in a mysterious, crystalline environment.
