Retrospecting Sandy Hill by Chris Shaw

“Sandy Hill Estate lies to the North West of Farnham, on the border of Surrey and Hampshire.

A mixture of private and council housing, the estate was designed around a through road, which ran like a spine, with cul-de-sacs leading off it to parking areas made up of open areas and garages.

The houses were of unusual design – with the back of the homes facing the roads and garages, and the fronts opening onto small interlocking courtyards interlaced with a network of footways. While studying photography at a local art college in 1987,

I discovered this place. I felt alienated from my fellow students, but found a home on the Sandy Hill Estate. Over the next three years I gave people photo prints which led to more pictures – the camera was an excuse really. I liked talking to ‘normal’ people. Obviously they were obsessed with cars and bikes – they were ‘normal’ to me.”
