British photographer Robert Clayton has unveiled a collection of photographs from 1991 entitled Estate. Prompted by the reelection of a conservative government in Britain earlier this month, Clayton delved into his archives and discovered an array of shots of a council estate in Birmingham, decimated by Margaret Thatcher’s government during the early 1990s.
