Andrew Meredith: Royal Oak
Edition of 20
60 x 50 cm
Giclée print on Hahnemüle Photo Rag Paper, 2021.
The elevated section of the famous Westway links West to Central London. Above, the cityscape opens to reveal high-rise developments towering over hazardous junkyards, train lines, rooftop bus stations, storage yards and acres of unfinished redevelopments. Beneath are grimy corners and dumping grounds, protest graffiti, caravans and unfortunate souls living on the street in plain sight. Tracing a route more often only glimpsed at speed from a fast-moving car, these images bring together these two levels of life in the shadow of Grenfell Tower.
