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.
