Arthur Comely 1st Year Commercial Photography Student created a documentary project that tells a story of the distress and sadness of the public who are losing Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, London.

This project is on the people, space of elephant and castle shopping centre explored through photography and film. The space that interested me is the shopping centre as it is being knocked down next year. What I discovered from doing this project is how an outsider may look on at this almost derelict shopping centre and think how awful it is but to the community, the space is a cultural communal hub . This project focused mainly on the older community and how the shopping centre was part of their every day life. The project includes a series of images and a video.Arthur-Comely-(1) Arthur-Comely-(5) Arthur-Comely-(2) Arthur-Comely-(3) Arthur-Comely-(6)
