One of my latest commissions was for a woman who visited my Studio and had seen my ‘Mirrored City’ collection. She asked me to photograph the fascinating Greater London Authority (GLA) building on the Southbank of the river Thames by Tower Bridge and create an image as a gift for her husband who had worked on the engineering side of the build.
This curious structure, to me appears as a mollusc like creature, suckered into place on the edge of the river. A creature searching for its place, venturing onto land only to find an impregnable defensive block wall built to keep newcomers out and forcing a retreat back to the water.
With this in mind, I felt it important to show the living quality that this unique sculptural building exudes. I therefore decided to focus on the building’s unusual curvasciousness, a quality more often associated with natural form than a manmade structure, and by emphasising on this I hope that my finished work shows the movement and life given out by this iconic building.
I’m always available to discuss commission work and bespoke ideas to suit individual projects.
