the grenfell legacy
I first visited the charred remains of the Grenfell Tower in Notting Hill, London, on the morning after the fire took its terrible toll.
I carried on documenting the aftermath of the tragedy during the following weeks, which moved me to write a poem: Requiem 4 Grenfell which has been published, along with my images and a voice-over
by Alex Etchart, by the
New Internationalist magazine.
I was then moved to follow part of the trail that led to inadequacies in many other council properties; a quest that inevitably took me to explore some of the broader issues that have created the huge social housing crisis in London and the rest of the UK.
