Project Description

Book cover, The Elephant Vanishes; Economy: The Elephant and Castle. Image rights: Patrick Sutherland.

Economy: The Elephant and Castle is the final part of three-part photographic series The Elephant Vanishes. The live project in its entirety spanned from 2006 to 2010, undertaken by students on the MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography course at London College of Communication. The project, under the directorship of Patrick Sutherland, pursued a long-term photographic documentation of the regeneration of the Elephant and Castle. Every new academic year students were equipped with a new theme with which to examine and portray the changes that came with the regeneration of the area.

An exhibition of the work was held at the Cuming Museum in the Old Town Hall on Walworth Road running from March until April 2012.
