Janette Scott is a photographer who recently graduated with distinction from the MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography course at London College of Communication. Her MA project, Deptford Creek, excavates the dense strata of the landscape, street and creek of Deptford in south east London.  It is accompanied by Deptford Creek Compendium, an anthology of extracts from literary and reference sources, interviews and new writing.

Other projects portrayed the gardeners of One Tree Allotment Society in London, and explored the landscape of Boris Johnston's proposed site for London's third airport on the Isle of Grain in Kent.

Janette's documentary practice has evolved from an interest in the past and present of specific places, the people who inhabit them and the traces they leave. Through photography, new writing and found texts she aims to connect the historical with the contemporary by developing visual archaeologies of landscape, presence and time. She also holds an MA in Visual Anthropology from Goldsmiths College, London and works part-time as a communications consultant in the arts.
