For Love & London

As a little treat for being two weeks behind in blog posts here’s my newest project | For Love & London


            For Love & London is an architectural exploration of iconic buildings in the capital of England. Created from a tourists’ perspective, it plays on the idea of the familiar becoming the unfamiliar. Those who are accustomed to their own city sometimes forget to pay attention to the things around them. More specifically, they never look up. These images are taken from ground level with a main focus on the tops of each structure. I wanted people, even those native to the country, to observe these well known buildings in a new light. By chopping off the bottom of every photograph it makes these places peculiar, almost foreign. And by omitting the sky, it tells the viewer exactly what they should be paying attention to whenever they leave their flat in the morning. We should appreciate these walls that have been built up around us. After all, this is how I see London. This is how I fell in love.
