Downturn is an ongoing document of the British landscape in a time of great economic turmoil. Over the past few months I have been documenting signs of the recession. I have witnessed elements that have traditionally balanced a British lifestyle meet their fate, with homes, workplaces and entertainment outlets all buckling under the strain. This body of work is not intended as a critique, or a veiled snipe towards the financial systems, but merely a document, a record of what is happening now.
