Artist's Description

Big Ben is one of the icons of London and England. The clock tower is a beautiful and imposing sight alongside the houses of parliament. Whilst many pass and admire its amazing architecture few study the intricate details that adorn it.

This work is part of my Dark Sky Series where I seek to use a cinematic approach to isolate my subject, similar to that sometimes used by portrait photographers to throw part of their subject into shadow. We are surrounded by many beautiful buildings which few people have actually “seen” with the exception of the architect who first envisaged them. Our skylines have become so crowded with buildings, each jostling for attention that the original design has become somehow lost. By isolating my subject I hope to capture at least some of the vision the original designer had intended us to see.
