Deptford with its dockyard and industrial history used to be the home of workmen and their families, living close to their workplace and shaping their neighbourhood. As the area is developed and rent prices are increasing, workshops and the people working there have to move elsewhere. This body of work portrays the last remaining workers in Deptford. Workers, once so present in Deptford, are now mostly hidden with workshops in back roads, back yards or under railway arches. For the exhibition pictures of local workers are pasted onto the wall. Just as the workers are an inseparable part of Deptford’s history, for a limited time the pictures become part of the built structure of the area.
