EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of urban living in 1980s London. The focal point is Henry Moore's iconic sculpture, "Two Piece Reclining Figure No 3" nestled amidst a backdrop of towering council blocks on Brandon Estate in Kennington. The juxtaposition of the organic curves of Moore's sculpture against the rigid lines and angles of the surrounding architecture creates a striking visual contrast. It symbolizes the harmonious coexistence between art and everyday life, reminding us that beauty can be found even in the most ordinary settings. The image also offers a glimpse into social housing during this era, showcasing one aspect of council estate development. Tower blocks like these were home to many residents seeking affordable accommodation within London's bustling cityscape. These high-rise structures provided much-needed residential space for communities, while also shaping the skyline with their imposing presence. As we peer into this snapshot from history, we are transported back to a time when tower blocks dotted London's landscape and served as symbols of progress and modernity. This photograph by Shenton encapsulates an era defined by architectural innovation and social change, inviting us to reflect on how our built environment shapes our lives and influences our sense of belonging within a community.
