London: Remnants and Icons


My aim for this project is to show the sublimity of London’s river. Specifically, I juxtapose the old, much forgotten yet still (sometimes) present foreshore of the Thames with the lavish new of famous landmarks by the Thames' side. I have chosen to use a subjective, low viewpoint as it invites the viewer to contemplate the river from a different perspective. My intended audience for this set of photographs would ideally be tourists of London or those less well versed in the circumstance of the Thames’ foreshore appearing when the tide is out. This is because I felt it would make the photographs more sublime if part of the ‘puzzle' wasn’t complete within each photograph - that of the foreshore.
