An Intimate Portrait of the last residents of The Aylesbury Estate

The Aylesbury Estate in South East London is in an irreversible state of decline and is on a course to its inevitable demolition in preparation for new homes. The images created (since the lifting of the 2020 lockdown) are an intimate collaboration with the last residents and offer an alternative narrative to the stereotype and mythologies of urban decay. The project recognises the unwarranted reputation that has overshadowed the amazing lives of generations who have made this place their home against the odds. It is a time capsule and alternative obituary of an estate otherwise forever labelled as the most notorious in the UK.

Portraits of the residents were dramatically projected onto the buildings of the Aylesbury Estate, (see documentation) on the evening of 22nd October 2020. The event was a culmination of a collaboration between artist Richard Ansett, local charity Creation Trust and residents. The event was live streamed on Instagram and fly poster exhibition was displayed in a garage under one of the condemned blocks.

The projections transformed the estate into a backdrop for the communication of a story of diversity and community behind the brutal facade.

An Intimate Portrait of the last residents of The Aylesbury Estate

The Aylesbury Estate in South East London is in an irreversible state of decline and is on a course to its inevitable demolition in preparation for new homes. The images created (since the lifting of the 2020 lockdown) are an intimate collaboration with the last residents and offer an alternative narrative to the stereotype and mythologies of urban decay. The project recognises the unwarranted reputation that has overshadowed the amazing lives of generations who have made this place their home against the odds. It is a time capsule and alternative obituary of an estate otherwise forever labelled as the most notorious in the UK.

Portraits of the residents were dramatically projected onto the buildings of the Aylesbury Estate, (see documentation) on the evening of 22nd October 2020. The event was a culmination of a collaboration between artist Richard Ansett, local charity Creation Trust and residents. The event was live streamed on Instagram and fly poster exhibition was displayed in a garage under one of the condemned blocks.

The projections transformed the estate into a backdrop for the communication of a story of diversity and community behind the brutal facade.
