It is about the memories they have associated with the derelict and then demolished block of flats they used to live in. The block of flats, Longbow House, was built in 1929 and demolished in 2003 as part of the ongoing redevelopment of Hoxton. The residents had opted out of Hackney Council tenancy in 1999 and once the building was demolished, almost all were rehoused locally in newly built or refurbished houses or flats. ”

The project was first aimed at documenting The Big Issue vendors’ lives, homeless people selling The Big Issue street magazine. I interrupted the project in 2004 and started it again in Cardiff in 2006. Lillo, an Italian drug addict, was the first person who I met in Newport. Thanks to Lillo I came into contact with the world of drug addiction and alcoholism. During the time spent with Lillo and his friends I realised that what really interested me was the human condition of addiction.”

The Aquila Earthquake (Foto8 Story of the Week: 23 Apr 2009) “In the night between the 5th and the 6th of April, the centre of Italy was shaken by a powerful earthquake. It came in the middle of the night, causing destruction and killing 294 people. It was so powerful that most of the small villages around Aquila were fully destroyed. Many questions remain unanswered. Would it have been possible to reduce the damage? Was everything done in order to prevent the disaster? Did they build structures, like the university hostel (where many students died), according to the law? But what matters now for the survivors is to bring their cities back to life as soon as possible, working hard and standing proud. Walking around the streets between ruins, sacred images, corpses and personal effects, gave me an glimpse into understanding of what is happening to the people of Aquila.”

He completed two tours of duty in Iraq, and came home with severe post traumatic stress disorder. Immense guilt and despair went untreated and ignored by Veterans Affairs, and on July 25, 2007, Noah drove to his favorite hangout in the woods, wedged his dog-tag between his temple and a pistol, and shot himself. Noah is one of the estimated 690 veterans of the War on Terror to commit suicide each month” (VII Network: 2009. N.B. photographed earlier)

Down on Wall Street  : “On September 14, 2008, financial markets around the world plummeted, heralding the beginning of the current economic crisis.
