I started this photographic project at Lambeth North Tube station which, according to some, is the location for Go on the London Monopoly board!
I had expected to re-visit the tube station, to pass Go and to end the project where it had started. However, when I was planning my final shooting trip I saw that the tube station was closed for refurbishment. So, instead of Lambeth North I concentrated on the £200 you get for passing Go.
My final image is a photograph of what looks like about £200 in various currencies. It was taken in Tate Modern and is a donation point for visitors. Over the past year I have visited the Tate on many occasions and decided on my last visit to join as a member. So, if anyone fancies a visit just let me know and I will be happy to get you in!
I hope you have enjoyed these photographs and stay tuned for further updates as I decide what to do with the images.
p.s. One of my photography friends asked me which were my favourite images from the project. If you would like to see please click here.
If you have any comments or questions, I would love to hear from you.
Thanks for getting this far. . . Peter
The game of Monopoly starts at GO! But this has no obvious location within London. After a bit of googling I learn that (according to the Ordnance Survey) the location of GO is Lambeth North tube station. Doesn't sound too convincing to me, but it proved an interesting location to start my photographic journey around London's Monopoly board locations.
Lambeth North is a dirty and pretty unloved station languishing south of the river. But it is close to the Imperial War Museum and a good starting point for a visit to the Lee Miller "A woman's war" exhibition.
If black and white grime photography is your thing then give Lambeth North a try.
