Doorway Illustration

Increasingly, experimental street artists are being drawn to places such as Shoreditch where, through their art display at street level, they can gain exposure. I found this doorway illustration by chance in Shoreditch High Street under one of the bridges. Tucked away in a small cul-de-sac it almost feels that it is hanging in its own bespoke gallery.

Arthouse Cinema

Entertainment has been badly hit by the pandemic, with cinemas sitting deserted on the high street. In photographing the Arthouse cinema I looked to capture its defiance in keeping the lights ablaze, reminding us of the good times and keeping our spirits uplifted. To enhance the drama of the shot, I looked to highlight the key architectural features of the cinema while deepening the shadows in the surrounding buildings.

Whitby Street Graffiti

As Shoreditch becomes ever-more the primary magnet for street and graffiti artists in East London, the creative bar gets ever higher. Whitby Street is one such sought-after location. In the heart of Shoreditch, Whitby Street buildings offer wonderfully expansive blank canvas walls on which artists can create and display their work. Potential shots for the photographer lie around every street corner.
