“Long Live Southbank presents our educational campaign film showing the 40 year history of one of London’s most unique cultural spots, the 9 month campaign to protect it, and the true story of its intended destruction by the Southbank Centre.”Long Live Southbank.

Brilliant Long Live Southbank film by Henry Edwards-Wood on the history of the Southbank and the campaign to defend it. I’m incredibly proud to be a member of the campaign. Please watch and share the film. Also check out a Blog post I did last month for the campaign on defensible architecture and the privatisation public space.

I took this picture of Alexander in August and by November it’s on a wall at the Jerwood. The picture is evidence of a private moment originally only to be shared with family and close friends via Facebook. Without doubt the right picture for this exhibition. Bringing the private into the public has been interesting and ultimately a rewarding experience. The show is on until 8 December 2013.
