Award-winning photographer celebrates Crossrail in Westway photography exhibition

Crossrail western tunnels site team take part in photographic exhibition, The Westway: A Portrait of a Community by photographer Paul Wenham-Clarke.

A photographic exhibition, The Westway: A Portrait of a Community by photographer Paul Wenham-Clarke will be shown at St Martin-in-the-Fields Crypt Gallery, London, from 9 January to 28 Feb 2013, and will feature photographic images of Crossrail’s Westbourne Park site team.

The exhibition documents the lives of those who live, work and play under the Westway, providing a snap shot of the people and communities along the route of the A40 in London.

Photographer Paul Wenham-Clarke said: “The Crossrail project is a substantial investment and is very likely to bring economic growth to the area, so I feel it is important to record this significant moment in London's history. It was a wonderful experience photographing the site workers, as I hoped my images would echo the photographs of the early railway workers back in the days of Isambard Kingdom Brunel.”
