I took the images at a house in Tower Hamlets. My mum’s friend Salvo lives there. He’s Maltese and in his late 80s. I’d been to the house before but didn’t have a camera on me. I can safely say I fell in love with the house. The decor, the empty rooms (he has four children but now lives by himself most of the time), and the delapidation stuck with me and I knew I needed to come back and document as much of it as possible.
