‘Bluetown’ is ‘a dream of London about itself, a celebration of the beauty of its own alienation and loneliness’.
To find ‘Bluetown’, I've superimposed an outline of Queen Elizabeth’s face on the map of London on which he plotted evenly spaced points, a grid of geographic coordinates.
Following the route set by this symbol of ‘Englishness’, I have then visited and photographed each location. The photographs featured in this self-published newspaper are a selection from the one hundred images that constitute the entire project.
I started by outlining Queen Elizabeth's face on the map of London. Then, with the help of a GPS, I travelled to each of the determined locations, where a single plate was exposed. That was my secret plan to find out what 'Englishness' is.
