Thesis (Working Title): Everyday Things White City: Generations 88 - 97


'Everyday Things’ is a project that visualises the experiences of Black millennials living in White City, Shepherds Bush, West London. The project combines two main methodologies. The first is an archival focused work, aimed at recovering the estate’s former imperial and colonial site, particularly the Great White City Exhibition (1908) but also more recent histories of the estate. The second is a form of collaborative photographic research undertaken with Black millennials (aged 23 to 32) currently living in White City. Depictions of Black millennial lives are rarely seen in British academic research. Inspired by the work of ‘everyday’ urban essays created by photographers in post-war America and the examinations of British landscapes by Black British photographers, my practice-related research facilitates site-specific dialogues, focused on contemporary and archival visualisations of the site and Black millennial experiences.
