Workshop Coffee & Co. has kindly accepted to offer our collective a rotational residency for the next 10 months at least. Each artist is being asked to use the same frame format and to re-visit their works to tell a new story. This project is titled SHORT STORIES FROM AN AUTONOMOUS SPACE and the first photographer to invest the space is Dominik Gigler with The River Lea from source to mouth.
"This photographic project follows the River Lea from its origins in Leagraves, Luton (51.910338°N 0.461233°W) to when it meets with the River Thames in London (51.507113°N 0.009184°E). On its 68kms journey it keeps changing its face from rough to romantic and back. Many stories are told about the people who live along it and the industries that shape the look of the environment. Two years before I started this journey London had been announced host City for the 2012 Olympic games. In 2007 the main area of development, which is now the Olympic Park, was cordoned off. The day before, I went in and photographed the river which runs through the area. The Games are now over, the River Lea keeps changing its face. It’s an ongoing project... "
