Artist's description:

“From the Ashes 3” is part of a series of digitally and manually manipulated images about the disappearance of Britain post-war prefabs. Supposed to last 10 years, they were part of the Temporary Housing Programme set up by Churchill Government at the end of WWII. Almost 70 years later a couple of Hundreds of these “palaces for the people” - as they were nicknamed- are still standing and lived in but facing demolition. This work is dedicated to their last residents and to those who had no other choice but to leave their cherished homes. Since 2002 I have been documenting post-war prefabs in the UK and been fascinated by the attachment of the residents to their home.“From the Ashes” is about demolition, destruction but also about the power of memory one can never destroy.
