The photo was taken: Riverside Museum Glasgow
Camera used: Canon
A colleague of mine alerted me to the CIOB Art of Building competition which he had seen details of in a magazine. The image I submitted was taken about a year ago during the construction of the Riverside Museum in Glasgow which will open in Spring 2011. It has been designed by Zaha Hadid architects. For the past few years I have been documenting the construction of the building which is being constructed on the site of an old dockyard. Every couple of months I go down to the site and photograph the next stage - as you can probably imagine I have hundreds of images. I used a new plug-in for Photoshop CS4 – ‘merge to HDR’ to heighten the sense of drama in the image.
