8 Million Stories in a Naked City

8 Million Stories in a Naked City is a book that gathers photos from a visit to the Heygate Estate in London before its demolition. The book sleeve is a fold-out poster that focusses on the former residents: while a diagram on the inside shows their displacement across the outskirts of London, the other side displays their portraits while still living at the estate. Once the demolition works started, a set of stickers was also created to populate the location, asking a question that aims to accentuate the sense of absence.
