As part of my project with the Downham Men’s Group I tried to snap some portraits of them during our Photo Walks and Workshops. It was a pleasure to work with these guys. They all share a passion for passing on the history of their area to future generations. This has certainly rubbed off on me. It is important to preserve not only the Natural Environment, but also architectural features and landmarks. The rate of change in London this year is unprecedented, and it is vital that future generations have a record of their heritage – whether it’s a Victorian stone horse trough that became a flower planter and was later stolen, or the species of animals and trees that are disappearing.
