Elephant memories was a project I created at university. Elephant and Castle is an area in zone 1 London, since the early 2000's it has experienced waves of gentrification. The shopping centre is the heart of Elephant and Castle and is known as a symbol of working-class and multicultural London. I was lucky enough to see it in all its glory, the shopping centre is now closed and has been demolished after many years of protests. These photos capture history and a way of life that is now a distant memory, I hope one day they'll be as special to someone else as they are to me.
