London is a city immersed in history yet tirelessly innovative. Constantly evolving and revolving, it's a city of exciting contrast. With this project, I wanted to capture its eclecticism through photographing the cities diverse population and fleeting moments in time that catch my eye. I am drawn to the poetic and serendipitous moments that in some way, reach towards the essence of what it means to live in such a city as this, in such a time as now.
I am drawn to the street first and foremost as I believe this is where the real character of a place exists, and London for me is no exception. 'London in Contrast' is a collection of candid 'reportage' style black and white photographs taken on the streets of London over 2 years from 2019 to 2020. It is a 30 piece (1/1) portrait of an ever-changing city. You are welcome to grab a small slice of it.
The environment shapes us unconsciously in more ways than we care to admit and specifically architecture has been known to affect our psychological state, nature and behaviour.
'Urban unconscious' is a body of photographic work based in the city of London that visually explores the interaction of life with urban architectural and geometrical structures, suggesting an interconnectedness in their momentary encounter.
