About

Kiera's work is concerned with how we experience place and how landscapes can represent the processes of psychological, cultural, and economic transformation. 'Lower Lea Exposures' is a series of images documenting the regeneration of the Lower Lea Valley in east London in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics. Realised in 2010, the images capture a fleeting moment in time as the construction begins to change the face of the area forever. The double exposures were taken on a Diana+ ‘toy' camera and reflect on the transformations taking place and the relationship between the industrial, natural and historical. The results are somewhat fragmented yet dreamy photographs that encourage the viewer to take a step back and reflect on the area's ambiguous beauty.
