ALONG THE RIVER LEA PHOTOGRAPHY DOMINIK GIGLER



ALONG THE RIVER LEA FROM SOURCE TO MOUTH THIS PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT FOLLOWS THE RIVER LEA FROM ITS ORIGINS IN LEAGRAVE, LUTON (51.910338째N 0.461233째W) TO WHERE IT MEETS THE RIVER THAMES IN LONDON (51.507113째N 0.009184째E). ON ITS 68-KILOMETER JOURNEY IT KEEPS CHANGING ITS FACE FROM ROUGH TO ROMANTIC AND BACK. MANY STORIES ARE TOLD ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE ALONG IT AND THE INDUSTRIES THAT SHAPE THE LOOK OF THE ENVIRONMENT. TWO YEARS BEFORE I STARTED THIS PROJECT LONDON HAD BEEN ANNOUNCED HOST CITY OF THE 2012 OLYMPICS AND IN 2007 THE MAIN AREA OF DEVELOPMENT, WHICH IS THE OLYMPIC PARK, WAS CORDONED OFF. THE DAY BEFORE, I WENT IN AND PHOTOGRAPHED THE RIVER, WHICH RAN THROUGH THE BUILDING SITE. IT'S AN ONGOING PROJECT AND I WILL BE BACK PHOTOGRAPHING THE RIVER AND ITS 'EVER-CHANGING FACE'.
