From inside the box
Project info

The first telephone boxes were introduced to the streets of London in 1926 and at their peak there were 92,000 in use throughout the UK. They have been a part of our community, we walk past them everyday and they have seen and heard a lot.

However, their usage has declined by over 90% in the last 10 years and the telephone box as we know it is rapidly disappearing. Soon, they will be no more. They will be replaced by newer devices or the places where they once stood will stand bare.

The graffiti, vandalism and degradation coupled with the location of the telephone box means that when you are standing on the inside of one of these and looking out, you are gaining an entirely unique perspective on otherwise familiar territory.

Using the glass on these phone boxes as a filter for the camera I have endeavoured to capture some of this perspective before it is gone forever.
