GREENWICH PENINSULA part1


First part of a two days walk around North Greenwich. I focused my attention to the Western part of the peninsula, the one facing Canary Wharf and going South towards Greenwich village walking down the Thames path until fences of new developments made me walk back towards the Blackwall Tunnel. Made my way back toward the tube station and walk back along the A102 until I reached the drive under the highway, then back to the station.



This first section represents more the industrial area which is still active but all the signs are there to tell you that not for very long. Golf practice, awaiting to be built empty tarmacs, sealed off Thames path, cleared fields and new developments on the rise. Yesterday was a very cold and grey day I therefore decided to shoot in black and white, not for its nostalgic aspect but in order to compare with the next part of the Eastern side (almost fully built) in colour later. I don't believe in the terminology and codes that either bw or colour would instinctively deliver a single feeling or address. I think it is really up to the photographer and how he directs his subject and its narrative. This not my intention here to draw the viewer towards nostalgia, on the contrary the bw enables me to find more depth in the vacant spaces depicted whereas the way I work in colour wouldn't have produced such analysis.

MARSHALL'S NEW CANNING TOWN

Peter Marshall paid a visit to the new Canning Town area this Summer. This urban landscape in panoramic mode is without recognition. That could be anywhere really. A tiny bit of land surrounded by the Lea mouth has grown towers and is now called City Island, as if the City is now merging with the further East End.
