Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen said: “Everywhere I work becomes important to me, but as I lived in Peckham as an art student it was a very interesting experience to revisit and explore the area and its people. It was like meeting an old friend with whom I had a lot of catching up to do. Both Peckham and I have changed a lot. While I feel that, in many ways ‘343 Perspectives’ is an intimate portrait of a specific place, I hope that it will also communicate with a universal audience through its humanistic approach and poetic depiction of people’s unique visions of life.”
