Susi Luard has joined Bleeding London to record the changing face of SE16.
“My introduction to photography about 3 years ago happened when I was Greg Lambert's packhorse, carrying his photographic gear for him. One day I decided to have a go while waiting for him and the rest is history! I shoot with Canon DSLR, Leica compact and iPhone depending on what I have with me while on the move. I don't restrict myself to any genre - urban & street, journalistic, landscape, architecture, wildlife & not so wildlife. The worse the weather the more I am determined to go out there and shoot! Whenever I can, I give my photographic services to non-profit making organisations. I'm currently the secretary of the City of London and Cripplegate Society and I plan to join RPS as a family member soon. I remain an amateur - someone who loves photography!
I joined Bleeding London as I know I would enjoy it and would love to contribute to this commendable huge undertaking which I think is a great way of recording contemporary life and cityscape for future generations. The face of London changes so rapidly and I intend to record the changing face of the area I live in, which is SE16. I anticipate my shots to be a mix of 'street' and architectural. The area around Canada Water has gone through a vast amount of development in the last few years and is still changing right now.”
