Hilary Powell

The featured image is a portrait of Lybomir, one of the invisible workforce who carries out the destruction that goes with urban renewal. Since working with men on the demolition sites of London, Powell has developed a technique of etching into zinc salvaged from the city’s rooftops, printing onto defunct architectural plans found in basements.
