I am using Polaroid cameras to produce images. The pictures carry the usual hallmarks of indistinctness, colour shift and texture, and seem to hold time within their surface in a very particular way. While these pictures can be produced in a few short minutes, like answers unforthcoming; they seem to conceal at least as much as they reveal. As time passes and the media attention waxes and wanes I am attempting to use these photographs as questions or reminders, to mark time.
Polaroid cameras were extensively used by the Police at crime scenes; to record details, bodies and the locations of objects.
The images are in response to the collective shock of the community who are frustrated and angry that such a preventable tragedy could happen. Now Grenfell Tower stands as a brutal symbol: highlighting the social divisions in one of the richest council boroughs in one of the richest countries in the world.
