Joe, had to move out of Muirhouse because he was stabbed, from 'Plastic Spoon"

Course: BA Photography and Film, Edinburgh Napier University

 

An organized collection of visual information, Plastic Spoon has evolved from 4 years of interacting and building relationships with the residents of Muirhouse Edinburgh, one of the most deprived council schemes in the UK.

The scheme, which is located on the outskirts of a city that – conversely – has the most millionaires per capita in the country, is known for its high unemployment rates and issues with drugs and violence. The photographs capture an array of individuals, landscapes, objects, and domestic settings that communicate the feeling of isolation, alienation, and a sense of eccentricity specific to Muirhouse.
