Title: Urban colour

About the Photo:

From a minimalist perspective, these photos seek to highlight the architectural features of a selection of building facades in my local area through focusing on shape, geometry, lines, and especially by changing or intensifying the original colours. The inspiration for this series stems mostly from a greater awareness and appreciation of my urban surrounds, gained during covid lockdowns. Confined to my local area, I began to see aspects of my immediate environment that had previously gone almost unnoticed.
