Park Life

Park life architecture.

This was an interesting and exciting assignment.

The architects and artists at Muf have redesigned many aspects of Max Roach Park, Brixton. Children are the main beneficiaries of this attention and now have access to fantastic new climbing frames and constructions.

There is also a community centre adjacent to the park. It is run by a great team of do-gooders and the children were all rather funny.

I had to shoot people, place and play area.

Project Chameleon; Playtime bar

Who would have thought…the photobooth really did work.

They’re such a wonderful group of girls…and in their own words, Project Chameleon is:

“We are a non-profit organisation, which manages and organises eclectic and edgy fundraising events. It is run by volunteers which means there are no costs and the full amount raised at our events goes directly to the programs themselves.

Project Chameleon aims to become a social movement. Every person involved in making our events happen is donating something, whether it is the acts donating their talent, the venue its space, or the photographers their time. So once again 100% of the money fundraised is spent directly on the development program the event aims to support.”

Now, the charity event held at Playtime bar, Islington Green, was an almighty success. I didn’t think it at all possible to associate work with play – but my, my, weren’t those lines blurred.

I believe a total of £2000 was raised for Senegalese street children.
