This beautiful control room is one of a kind and is built in a beautiful art-deco style.
This is part of a series of photographs demonstrating how the absence of light can be used to divert the attention of the observer towards what the photographer intended to highlight.
Flatiron Building in the Snowstorm
New York City’s iconic Flatiron building emerges from the blizzard like the bow of a giant ship plowing through the wind and the snow. Taken during the historic coastal storm “Jonas” on January 23rd, 2016 the photograph went viral during the aftermath of the storm.
In this frame men as well as women are working very hard to feed their individual families. Women forget their pain and work alongside the men in a brick field.

People's Friendship Arch

This series is about looking past imperfections and ‘incorrect’ architectural photography techniques. They are created using a 4x5 technical film camera by forcing the perspective and focus. The expired Kodak Ektachrome is then developed in the ‘wrong' chemicals to produce these big slabs of often other worldly colour. These are flawed and hopefully challenging, just like some of the buildings themselves.
