WORK AND PLAY project started at the end of the Beijing Olympic Games. It is made up of a series of images which illustrate the peak-time of economic crisis in the “city of brokers” (2009). With WORK AND PLAY, I tried to capture the “loneliness” so characteristic in London in those days.

I photographed both gloomy atmosphere in the financial quarters and traditional English sport events. The project does not want to be a classic photo reportage where each photo is combined with an explanatory caption.This collection of photographs highlights the feeling of loneliness and worry due to the economic crisis to inspire reflection on the current situation in London. It focuses on the atmosphere in dark places of the city and in the meantime it shows the importance of "faith" in sport which is particularly strong through all the country. WORK AND PLAY is a pun. PLAY is illustrated as “playing sports” but it contains all possible meanings of the word : play an instrument, play a game or play a drama. The “PLAY” lifestyle is a way of entertainment to escape everyday sorrow and being proud of something. Waiting for 2012 Olympic Games these two characters of British people become more and more evident : on one side they have to face economic crises but on the other side they still supporters of their favourite athletes.
