Docklands is an ongoing research, documenting the transition of former harbor areas in different cities. Focusing on the high demand for living near the water the project tries to get a grip on shifting social demographics, waterfront development and similarities within these areas.
AGENCY - DOCKLANDS is one chapter of the project, which is specifically questioning the role of the community within the powerplays of city development. Does a community have the right to claim the land, after having lived there for over 20 years? Is ownership strictly defined through legislation?
In this chapter the arguable question is raised of 'the right to the city', driving from the personal background of the photographer, who has experienced several struggles between communities and other powerhouses that determine urban planning.
The project will go online soon.
