The plan for Milton Keynes was visionary. A garden city organised around a rigid grid. A low green lush place, planned for the car with self-contained neighbourhoods at its core. Over a weekend in March, MAP6 visited Milton Keynes to coincide with its 50th birthday, to create a document of a poignant moment in the history of the city. For 72 hours, 8 photographers intensively captured its geography, people, structure and architecture to create an overlapping, collaborative project. Themes include portraits of people who live and work in Milton Keynes; the interwoven relationship between the car and the landscape, the close scrutiny of everyday moments as they unfold, and a celebration of its ambiguous, original and visionary architecture. The work was made in collaboration with the MK gallery in Milton Keynes, to be exhibited as part of the cities 50th anniversary celebrations.
