A 571-flats council estate has just been destroyed in Holloway, North London. Up until the very last days before demolition, 31 families still called the Market Estate their home. This place, built around an old clock tower, dated back to the 1960s, and represented a Utopian vision of modern urban planning: some of its residents, of a generation moving on from post-war Britain, had been living there for over 40 years.
For this project, Clarisse d’Arcimoles has taken a portrait of Jimmy Watts, on of the first resident to have moved into the Market estate in 1967.
