Coins, Bank Notes , Cottages, Skyscrapers… Diversities in their materials and compositions, ethics and destinations. where a single coin will became a bank notes increasing its number. A cottage will be a Skyscrapers if you would overlap some more on top of the original. Simple as you read, simply as to have some.
Creation and destruction, forcing to be, forcing to not to be, here we go with a city portrait in their contrasting materials.
Today we discover Francesca Pompei, with her solo instrumental camera catching the soul of the attempting houses to upgrade its installation, while firming pyramids are standing, observing the low society. Stairs to the succes where the night doesn’t stop them the money growth, or imperial Theatres vs hidden doors at the street line.

Before I moved from Warren Street to this neighborhood, I felt this area would show me more of London than the Skyline of the own city does. I am not here to exaggerate the convergence of the culture, I am here to explain how I am feeling within this new place without parking in the sideline any of the London’s neighborhoods, as each is different, growing up with similitudes but in their own geography and past history, and everyone should have this in mind.
More lucky than not, I fall down in this area, and now I have discovered new places to go and discover art, at this point the main theme for me, and a motivated comunity who looks to inspire people from this area and the rest of them to came and enjoy the social happenings of Peckham.
At this point I may say I have got inspired to dedicated the name of my blog to this occurrence, even if I am still in love with Fitzrovia, my previous neighbordhood ❤ London
