2015 — 2018
The Tower Block series started with Clydesdale Tower which was inspired by Rut Blees Luxemburg’s ‘Towering Inferno’, famously used on The Streets - ‘Original Pirate Material’ cover. There is also a nod to other photographers including Lewis Baltz and Michael Wolf. Originally shot in 2012, I revisited the building in 2015 with a different vision. This time the composition removed the building from its environment, giving a new refined visual presence. Photographed at night with an overcast sky, moisture and light pollution produced a beautiful gradient framing the geometrically focussed tower. The rest of the series followed suit.
