The photographs in Cicadas were made during several long, unguided walks around South London during 2020, all within a few miles of my home. The images are of chance encounters with the mundane, all set in less documented areas of a late-capitalist suburbia. Leaving my house in order to get lost in my familiar day-to-day surroundings, the photographs made on these walks could be a document of the tension and an accidental beauty held in the outskirts of a city; or possibly the calm before the storm.
