Research – David Hoffman

I have looked briefly at the work of David Hoffman, primarily his Cotall Street squat eviction series of images. There are some that show the bare squat and its condition without the squatters in the scene,  this closely resembles the type of images I have captured.

It is not really the subject that connects to my images but the condition, sadly the flat I am photographing was not a squat although it in some ways resembled the images David Hoffman has captured both in his Cotall Street squat eviction and his Stepney squat. In fact I hadn’t realised but there was also a garage at the flat that was filled with waste, mostly rabbit hutches?? In total over 2 tonnes was removed which is probably similar to the amount of waste that must build up in a squat!
