This office – Room 7540 – has been empty for months. The doors are locked and I have to take a photograph through the glass doors. It used to be a bustling place, filled with desks, journalists and everyday life. In the glass office on the right, editorial meetings took place every weekday morning. All that’s left now are a couple of abandoned printers in this shell.
I worked in this place for many years. The other occupants have moved to new showpiece premises in the centre of London, while my work keeps me close to the old office. It’s an empty, eerie experience walking past. BBC Television Centre is gradually winding down before closure next month. My place there enables me to capture abandonment and memories.
