Series investigating work and working conditions in service based society, through the exam of its dominant space of work - the office. The photographs document the offices of financial, corporate, and legal institutions based in the City and Canary Wharf, London.

From the press release:
The photographs reveal the new, post-Taylorist office, where discipline is achieved through rather subtle, symbolic means: spectacular, richly decorated receptions and clients' areas which blur the lines between work and fun; colourful, stylish 'breakout' areas and staff 'amenities' provided as a trade-off for the loss of personal space in the now widespread 'non-territorial' offices, where there are no assigned desks; a system of spatial 'status markers' – quantity and quality of furniture, décor, amount of space per person, location within the floor and the building, – put in place to signal hierarchical relations of power, reflecting wider systems that influence life in industrialised society, where material possessions often signify social status.

128 photographs, 20 x 30 cm each, individually captioned
