Walls of nothing
I'm quitting Shoreditch soon but before I go I wanted to commemorate some of the most popular graffiti sites in the area. It's somewhat minimalist, as I've deliberately caught them when they've been painted over, but aficionados will no doubt recognise these street art hot spots.
Unfortunately this is what the area is going to look like as it becomes increasingly developed and landlords take greater interest in keeping their properties pristine as rents go up. I began photographing graffiti in the area nearly one-and-a-half years ago; I suspect EC2 will be almost unrecognisable in another 18 months.
