Assignment Five – Personal Project – Rework

This is the reworked version of this assignment for assessment, following feedback and reflection. The revisions from the original submission were quite extensive: choosing not to include images from an original photo-shoot from 2009, to interviewing shopkeepers and business owners, to creating a video.  The video itself also altered from a ‘walk down the high street’ to a better reflection of the character of Welling.  Sound and text were also added.

To found a great empire for the sole purpose of raising up a people of customers, may at first sight, appear a project fit only for a nation of shopkeepers. It is, however, a project altogether unfit for a nation of shopkeepers, but extremely fit for a nation whose government is influenced by shopkeepers.                                                                                                                                  Adam Smith 1776

England is a nation of shopkeepers.                                                                                                                                            Napoleon Bonaparte circa 1802

Once packed with thriving independent shops, Britain’s high streets are now dominated by betting chains, charity shops and discount stores. In the first half of 2014, there were 16 store closures a day.
