Tacked away from the busy streets of Hackney (London), I stumbled upon Andre Street, a small passage lined with railway arches. The signage and the textured layers of overlapping paint reveal what is happening behind the closed doors when open for business - most of the arches are converted into car mechanic workshops. In their unpretentious appearance, they seem time-less, as if one entered a time warp of the unchanged neighbourhood.

With the series Railway Arches, I am investigating visual realms of accidental creativity done unintentionally. Devoid of people, these images serve as a testament to creative processes done by unsung workers.
