This week I met up with Julia Elmore, to complete my first “London Cameos” video on the beach at Gabriel’s Wharf, on the South Bank in London – only a stone’s throw from the Royal Festival Hall and within sight of St Paul’s Cathedral.
The idea behind the “London Cameos” is to capture someone on film, in their favourite part of London – either talking about their connection to the area, or creating art.
Here, Julia creates a One Wheeled Thames Serpent from the flotsam and jetsam she finds on the beach. She says she often goes to Gabriel’s Wharf to create art, and she finds its temporary nature liberating. I loved making the film, and it was fascinating to watch Julia create her art, although I’m not sure I would have been able to let go so easily!
