Searching for Ghosts

Homes reveal much about the people who inhabit them offering an intimate portrait of our domestic lives and bearing the traces of the people who lived in them in the past. The fabric of the buildings document the layered changes of occupancy, taste and the passage of time. Working with the museum and photographer Tom Hunter participants undertook an exploration of some of the housing in East London; from the demolished tower block on the Holly Street Estate in Hackney, blown up in 1991, to the imposing red brick of the Boundary Estate in Tower Hamlets, the first municipal housing estate, built by the London County Council in 1898.
