Economy: the Elephant and Castle was the third part of a three-part work in book and exhibition format and entitled The Elephant Vanishes.
Patrick Sutherland is Director of The Elephant Vanishes, a long-term photographic documentation of the regeneration of the Elephant and Castle, undertaken with students on the MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography course (MAPJD). Each year of the project students were set themes, which interrogate different aspects of the regeneration and development project. The resulting exhibition and book embraces divergent creative strategies: a key aspect of the work produced is its visual variety, leading to a rich layering and overlapping of documentary forms.
This work is edited and curated into exhibition and book format by Sutherland. The overall project. The Elephant Vanishes, was launched with a PARC study day at LCC in 2006. Numerous people including Prof Val Williams, Prof Tom Hunter, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Paul Lowe , John Easterby and Brigitte Lardinois contributed to the project.
