A Portrait of a Community documents the lives of those living beneath and in the shadow of the A40 flyover in west London. Built in the 1960s, the road was bulldozed through the heart of North Kensington taking with it 600 homes and prompting over a 1000 people to leave the community. Today, this monumental structure towers over homes, businesses, sports facilities and educational centres, as local communities seek to make the most of the negative space of the road’s supporting arches and the circumstances in which they find themselves. Together, these communities make up a varied whole; a community which itself is rich in social, spiritual, and cultural diversity. As such, The Westway is a snapshot of modern, multicultural Britain in a time of change.
