Pocket-sized Peninsula

My new artist book, "To the Peninsula, my Friends" is out now! It is a poem with photographs taken on a walk along the Greenwich Peninsula in London, currently undergoing massive development. Having grown up in Greenwich, since childhood I have often walked eastwards along the river and witnessed the many changes to the landscape and use. On this occasion, I spotted a very unassuming building called 'The Ernest Shackleton Lodge', tucked amongst the newer higher-rise flats. Intrigued by the contrast and possible connection between Shackleton and the newly developed Peninsula, I decided to combine the quotes of the polar explorer with the sales language of the Greenwich Peninsula PR. Though one hundred years apart, these two sources seem to be steeped in the same hubris, pioneering new territories but for whom? 

The book is A6 format in an edition of 50. It is signed and hand-stitched and costs just £7.50 including post and packaging to the UK and the EU. If you would like to have one, please email me at: 

Many thanks to Julia Stone for design and production of the book.
