Walking the streets of European cities; Venice and Saint Petersburg, I was presented with a new challenge, capturing cities from the ground close up. With dramatic facades towering above I decided to mirror the flat confrontational buildings with my work. Removing perspective and everyday life the photographs become flat and focused purely on the extraordinary architecture of the city.

This series exhibited as part of "Romantic Cities" in Paris in 2010 is a matter of architecture, colour and light and the atmosphere they together create. This is central to photography for me.
