Mostly Uninvited 72

AlisonSye72

Sierah Mansaray, who is part of Croydon’s CitySafe team. Photography by Greg Funnell. Taken from an article in Completely London* (issue 10, Autumn 2012), about London’s quiet revolutionaries, written by Sophie Radice.

*Completely London is a superb free magazine from Kinleigh, Folkard and Hayward (estate agents, if you didn’t know). Its main aim is probably to sell houses, but it doesn’t seem that way. The articles are worthy of any fancy-pants expensive magazine, and the photography is second to none. They always credit their artists and photographers. We bought and sold our house with KFH, so I probably signed-up for this without even knowing. I would’ve cancelled it ages ago, if it wasn’t for the fact that I look forward to reading it. It has integrity, a word not normally said in relation to anything connected to estate agents. I am not vouching for KFH, by the way, just the magazine crew.

If You Are New Here: This project involves me sewing faces, from the obscene amount of junk mail that finds its way into my house, onto a big woollen blanket. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the junk mail was pushed through my letterbox. Or else it was inside of a newspaper. I will always credit photographers, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about the other faces.
