Streets in the sky is an on-going project documenting five high rise tower blocks in Layton, Blackpool, which are all due for demolition to make way for newer, more modern housing. The people of Queensway Estate will be given a small amout of money and asked to leave their homes behind whilst the regeneration takes place. The flats were built in the 60's and have become an icon in Blackpool in their own right.
My aim is to document the change in the landscape and the affects the regeneration will have on the lives of the residence. The project started as a University asignment last year and achieved a '1st' mark.
By continuing the project I hope to build a large body of work that will record the memories and life of the towers for years to come.
