Lauren reflects on the disproportionate access to natural spaces that face young Londoners today, in this powerful series of photos walking through Woodberry Wetlands nature reserve.

With a lot of young Londoner's from non-affluent families to be given a house, most cannot afford housing on the spectrum of developers. Being no longer able to apply for any of the oversaturated subsidised housing programmes, they can end up being pushed out of areas that have close access to nature. Will our generation be permanently out-priced of areas with natural access in London? 

I was trying to show the mix of housing behind the wetlands, symbolic of how with areas of 'natural beauty', cheaper social housing is often knocked down or bid on by property developers. This reallocating areas that have long been home to these communities, who have often times worked and campaigned for better living conditions, once developed creates a breeding ground for gentrification.
