Consider photographing nice areas nice housing that can then be distorted bleached worked on top of using graffiti ect. Look at the idea of different housing within the same area and consider the effect of gentrification on the environment of your chosen area. Areas to look at 1) Tottenham 2) Millhill 3) Woodgreen

2) Photograph more estates ie your grandmas estate in n17 or bounds green on the 221 bus route , experiment with photoshop and also physically working on top of the photographs. Use wire wool and paint to scrub at the photo and then wash light colour over certain parts then rescan this back into photoshop and work into more. Photograph more graffiti that can be photoshopped into your pictures consider visiting leek street graffiti tunnel in water loo or south bank
