A photographer of interest in relation to Assignment 1 is Polly Braden who:

has become renowned for her documentary photography exploring the relationship between everyday life, work, leisure and economics. Searching for small and telling gestures her images are acutely observed portraits and broader assessments of contemporary culture (Website, s.d)

Although Polly Braden works on long term projects (Campany, s.d) viewing her photographs can inform a short term project such as this Assignment which has substantially fewer objectives. For example images from ‘London’s Square Mile’ (Harper, 2014; Braden, 2014), are of particularly interest (see figs. 1 to 5) being both ‘documentary’ in style and visually interesting and rich in detail.
