Project Description

The Elephant Vanishes: Home. Image rights: Patrick Sutherland / LCC MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography.

Home: Elephant and Castle was the start of what became a three-part series documenting the changing landscape of the area, The Elephant Vanishes. Set as the year one project undertaken by MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography students at London College of Communication, led by Patrick Sutherland.

The Elephant Vanishes was a six-year photographic and text-based documentation of the people and places amidst the context of large-scale regeneration projects taking place in the Elephant and Castle. Every new academic year students were set new themes with which to examine and portray the changes large and small.

‘Home’ is made up of 97 photographic works, exhibited at London College of Communication and compiled into part one of the publication The Elephant Vanishes. MA Photography students that participated in ‘Home’: Dougla Abuelo, Lihee Avidan, Mauro Bottaro, Thomas Brandi, Nicola Dracoulis, Shehani Fernando, Irina Popa, Lydia Polzer, Ben Speck.
