The Landscape of Murder Map
The Landscape of Murder is a photographic series documenting all the sites where murders have occurred in London, United Kingdom since January1st, 2011. At present I have photographed 175 sites where a murder has occurred. My aim is to give memory to what are mostly forgotten events, unseen places, landscapes where great violence has occurred. A violence that is mostly silent, private and unseen to the wider public. Most murders that take place rarely make the news and if they do occupy the news for a fleeting time. The Landscape reverts back to normality quickly after the forensic teams leave. Yet the scar is there, sometimes subtle, sometimes very open, wether it’s a single solitary flower or a large crowd of grieving family and friends. Sometimes there is nothing to show that a life has ended.My goal is to record this Landscape of Murder in all its forms.
