Kingston is a new centre for London in terms of its speed of development, but it’s an old town. This isn’t always evident to visitors. And while it’s easy to assume that, outside the city centre, nature and the river are wilder and easier to access, this too can be a misconception. Many places here are privatised and fenced up along Kingston’s riverside. This is a project about aspiration, deception, and the hidden beauty to be found in neglected places.
