A Photographic Archaeology of the Future: in Ursula K Le Guin’s science fiction novel ‘Always Coming Home’ the narrator describes an archaeological site of a village from the future.

Made by and featuring Roman Perona Gutierrez, Laura Blight, LINGLING Du, Jessie Edwards Thomas, Shi Ronghui, Scott Perry, Chen Xiaoyang and Tang Yinting, as part of a workshop organised for MA Photography at LCC, UAL.
