The New Towns
The New Towns

The New Towns were planned and built in England to house populations who had lost their homes in WWII. Beginning in 1946, the New Town Development Corporations was responsible for their management, design and development. Over seven decades the economic climate fluctuated, political ideas changed and new social aspirations superseded the dreams of the previous generations. Today, the New Towns preserve some of their initial character but their identity is shifting in favour of more and more national and international elements.

Raoul Ries is a photographer based in London and Luxembourg. He is interested in people and places, and in how their history and key characteristics can be perceived or reconstructed in a photograph. Raoul Ries’s work has been exhibited internationally.
