The Colour of Class 2020

For the September 2021 edition Strand was commissioned by the Financial Times ( UK) to make a work in response to the City of London. Known for repurposing vernacular imagery, Strand this time turned to her own photographic archives of a project made on the streets of London in 2001. For Colour of Class, Strand reviews these images through the coloured lens of the Charles Booth poverty Maps (1886-1903).
Parrotta brings to you this concentrated show of 7 small black and white images, glazed with different coloured glass. Each work references the Boothian 7 colour code system, representing levels of wealth and poverty within the City of London.
