Taken on a trip to London in the Summer of 2015.
I found two young girls deep in concentration, set in two different London neighborhoods that are both being affected heavily by gentrification: one has been virtually swallowed whole, while the other is well on it's way. Each girl to me represented the current state of each neighborhood with one set firmly in stone and the other looking on to where the future may lead...
In many ways they are a reflection of my own existence in San Francisco as a resident who has been forced to endure and look on as gentrification has greatly affected many of those around me.
