Ordinary morning in spring
Winner, CRESC photo competition 2011, titled "Framing the City":
Isle of Dogs, the East End peninsula of London, is one of the most divided districts in our capital. While the affluent, glamorous banking area Canary Wharf is merely 10 minutes walk away, life is close to the bread line behind these poorly-insulated windows. Many struggle silently, day after day.
Having the district as its backdrop, this image captures an ordinary moment of minimal urban life. It aims to serve as a reminder of the social divide in our society, an inconvenient truth we can no longer afford to deny.
