Heather Tait - Cliftonville West 2014-2019
Cliftonville West 2014 – 2019 is a photographic snapshot of the community that Heather lives in. It documents the street life of the area. Cliftonville remains one of the poorest wards in the country despite the rapid socio-economic changes taking place through ‘gentrification’. It’s a culturally rich, ethnically mixed and dynamic part of Margate. It’s a vibrant place with one of the largest Roma communities in the country and many of my images document the families and children of these communities. This project is a photographic snapshot of a moment in Cliftonville’s history. Times are changing though.
As part of Margate Now, Heather's work can be seen on the wall space outside Fort Road Hotel, adjacent to Turner Contemporary, until 3rd November 2019.
