Metropole documents the brutal uprooting of London’s foundations at the hands of corporate developers, for the benefit of wealthy investors and absentee property speculators. In the wake of aggressive high-end development, genuinely affordable housing has diminished and residents of London are pushed ever further out from the core. Bush takes a psychogeographical approach to photographing the city’s evolving urban landscape and presents extensive research behind 28 major developments — including the property developers behind these schemes and their use of opaque offshore financial structures and political lobbying.
