Under Tracks in perpetuity
As I’ve said in previous blogs on this project, Under Tracks has not been just about taking photographs of the occupants of the railway arches – I have in fact been recording social history.
After the show is over…
I finally showed 96 framed photographs of Under Tracks at The Underdog Gallery.
The Final Shot for Under Tracks
With just less than a month before the Under Tracks exhibition at Underdog, I finally get to one of the truly unique arch locations in London, Flying Fantastic in Southwark.
South-east to Nunhead
Another visual omission from Under Tracks is a garden centre.
Walthamstow to Wanstead
This is going to be a long days trek.
Made in Chelsea
Halfway down the King’s Road in Chelsea is the Michael Hoppen Gallery at Jubilee Place.
Food, Glorious Food!
Last November, I visited the arches to the north of South Bermondsey and became aware of an expanding stretch of “foodie” arches that traded on Saturdays… Time for a revisit?
Way Out West…
Most of the 4,400 arches in London are owned by Network Rail, but the ones below the Underground tracks (where the tracks are above ground!) are the property of Transport for London (TfL).
From E8 to V8s…
Last October we visited Hackney Downs and came across a vodka distillery being built in a railway arch – hopefully it is finished now, so time for a revisit?
It is the first bright Friday of the year as we set off again into uncharted territory from Camden Road station.
Back to Black with Brandt…
I recently received a catalogue from Sotheby’s for their upcoming Made In Britain auction on March 16th.
Another Pic of Peckham or Two…
It’s early December and we’re making a return visit to the Blenheim Court in Peckham Rye, the Arches Studios triangle we first visited in July.
Dog Day Afternoon…
I’m visiting north-west South Bermondsey! It’s the run-up to Christmas and so I’m expecting to have to make a few revisits when the arch occupants are less busy.
You Visualise It. We Can Create It…
Probably my last shoot of the year as we head south-east from London Bridge to Deptford – my intention to walk back ‘up’ the line to Bermondsey.
Up the Downs and Down the Fields…
I’m told there are over 4,000 railway arches in (Greater?) London and I’m sure a high proportion of them are used by the motor industry.
Farewell to an Arthouse Archway…
I’ve got permission from Amy at Le Pain Quotidien head office to shoot at their South Bank restaurant, so that’s our first stop.
A Pick of Peckham
Dallas at the DnA Factory in Herne Hill informed us that Peckham Rye had some interesting arches, and he was certainly right.
Some Late Summer Sequels
My list of ‘return visits’ has been getting longer and longer, so time to tick a few off.
South by South East
Before a visit to the NPG to see the Audrey Hepburn photographs, a quick visit in and around Waterloo East.
The Hills are Alive…
Further south, in June, to Herne Hill. I had done some research for this trip and discovered the Bath Factory Estate lying behind the shops off Norwood Road: a long run of arches with two great locations at each extremity.
