Photographer John Moore on Walthamstow’s ever-changing skyline, and how it impacts the culture of Waltham Forest as a whole…
“The skyline around Walthamstow is in a rapid state of flux. New developments are springing up, and the sight of cranes on the horizon has become a constant feature.
“These imposing structures offer the chance of much needed accommodation to thousands of new and old residents. They also signify change to the local area on an unprecedented scale. New homes mean new residents, new opportunities, but also new demands on current infrastructure and services.
“As the visual aesthetic of the area changes so does the cultural. How will the occupants of these new mini towns impact the borough is yet to be seen.”
