A series of photographic works, developed during a 6 month residency, offering a unique insight into the lives of the inhabitants of Soho, London. Working collaboratively, we photographed groups of Soho residents in their homes, who identified with a particular joy or challenge of living in the neighbourhood. These themes – from fighting for residents’ rights, to the joy being able walk everywhere – were drawn out of numerous conversations with locals about their lives. The resulting images were initially shown in a pop up gallery in the heart of Soho and then on The Photographers’ Gallery hoardings throughout Summer 2011.
