“Over a four month period Paul was tasked with revealing the diversity, wildness and beauty of Thamesmead’s landscape for Peabody as part of our 30 year project to create London’s New Town. Thamesmead has incredible landscape of parks, gardens, canals and lakes that is largely unknown in London. Through familiarising himself with the estate, engaging with local residents and Peabody colleagues, and with an clear passion for landscape photography, Paul has managed to capture its diversity and beauty.
Throughout this large and complex photography commission, Paul managed his time effectively, kept to budget, organised monthly update team meetings and regularly sent through images as the project progressed, so we knew the photos he was taking were exactly what we wanted..
We now have a series of striking images that we can use to talk about Thamesmead as a place with a strong identity and great future.”
