For me, the true spirit of London lies within the interwoven tales of people living in this city. Asking my grandma what London meant to her, she said “London saved me." And she’s right, being in London gave my grandma hope. Food on the table, shoes on her children’s feet and most importantly, safety. A life that we see as normal but she saw as a luxury. To her, and to many, London is a sanctuary, and my work is inspired by the story of how my grandmother was saved by London, but also of how us, the people, are the spirit of London.
