Post-Apocalypse Now

This body of work is the outcome of a project from Elephant & Castle in SE1 London.

It’s created in the Heygate Estate, which was completed in 1974 as a futuristic mass housing dream of a modern living environment. 37 years later it is being demolished as a part of the regeneration process of the whole Elephant & Castle area.

With almost every single apartment emptied and blocked up, this massive estate stands as a monument of lives once lived. The superficial signs of humanity are rapidly deteriorating, eaten away by nature.

Welcome to the Post-Apocalypse.

  1. Cool interpretation Anders. That batman flipflop with the thong covering up the superheroes face really works, as do floppy disc and the mug. To me these are the most effective metaphors of time passing in this set. Nice architecture frames as well…
