The Last Things [2007]

Between September 2006 and April 2007, supported by Arts Council of England, I  worked in a secure military location below ground in central London. At that time, the space, known as Pindar was the first port of call in any situation where the safety of the country is under threat. The Ministry of Defence allowed me an unprecedented level of access which has enabled observation of a live working space, continuously on standby, and fully prepared for the most extreme national emergency.

The Last Things develops ideas about the institutions of government and the manifestations of power and, how the making visible these environments is intended as acts of democracy. These themes are addressed in my series The Commons (Velvet Press) and 28 Days. The Last Things was published by Dewi Lewis Publications as a 65 image monograph in 2007.
