Photographer Elena Dante reflects on a year of change in the London Borough of Waltham Forest, from demolished buildings to activism and art…
“I’ve always been amazed by the speed at which London changes and reinvents itself. It’s a relentless run, where things are gained, and things are lost and mourned.
“2020 brought unprecedented challenges, to which Waltham Forest residents responded with resilience and creativity, while Black Lives Matter inspired a new commitment to rediscover history and celebrate diversity. 2021 brings the new challenge of Brexit, whose true impact will only become clearer in the next months.
“Throughout life, we will always face change – sometimes sudden and unexpected, sometimes fought for or against. How we deal with it makes who we are.”
