The ELSC FILES is a book and exhibition project with the East London Stripper Collective that evidences the activism of a group of six women, juxtaposing this with the language of photographic portraiture and performance within an East London warehouse awaiting demolition and redevelopment. In this setting these representations and re-representations within a series of six books challenge the notion of ‘progress’ in many ways. The content includes not just portraiture, but evidence of social media as a site for participation, communication and public event organisation - challenging the stigma of stereotype that dogs the perception of this industry.
