Joséphine Elvis "Talking about a regeneration: the Aylesbury Estate, London, England"

"Estate view"

"On the edge"


"Aylesbury Estate youth center"

"Aysen the activist"


This series of pictures depicts a slice of the life of the people living in the Aylesbury Estate in London. It is U.K's largest housing estate and it is now undergoing a regeneration. The apparent grey dullness of the buildings hasn't attracted the attention of many photographers thus their life is seldom known. I met Aylesbury residents, got a unique insight of their home and discovered a warm, close-knit community that contradict its "hell estate" reputation.
