THE HARLESDEN & WILLESDEN PHOTOGRAPHY ARCHIVE

A comprehensive, largely unseen archive of photographs, made by Roy Mehta, documenting life in Brent in the late 1980s and early 1990s in an exhibition at the Library at Willesden Green.

Roy Mehta is a photographer who grew up in Kenton. Going to art school in Surrey in the late 1980s made him more curious about where he was from - he began documenting life in Harlesden and became particularly interested in religious activities. The project went on for five years and he took over 3000 photos. With support from the Brent 2020 Culture Fund, he is now revisiting the project with students from the College of North West London.
