Walthamstow Stadium / London / September 2010

Walthamstow Stadium is one of those pieces of architecture that is incredibly evocative, whether you’ve been there or not. At it’s peak it has the largest track in the East End of London, and indeed, in the UK. More importantly, Blur stuck it on the cover of Parklife, one of my first albums. It’s popularity waned considerably in the last ten years and, in 2008, it closed. Since then a series of plans have been proposed for it’s reuse and L&Q and Conran & Partners are now working together to use the site for a residential development. I was asked by both parties to photograph the site as it is at the moment for their records so, accompanied by a former assistant of mine (and now C&P employee) Brooke.
