Last chance to see the wonderful, seemingly impossible floating building in Covent Garden East Piazza by artist Alex Chinneck with is on display until October 24, 2014. The engineering behind the 12-metre-long sculpture has been made from a steel frame and a type of expanded polystyrene called filcor to reduce weight. The counterweight for the cantilever is hidden in the green market stall to the right if the structure. Digital paint techniques and were used to resemble the existing architecture in the area.

These photos was created by blending multiple frames in Photoshop so as to have a clear image of the sculpture as there was a constant flow of people obstructing the view.

Mila Furstova and Coldplay, Royal Albert Hall, London, 2nd July

Had a peek behind the scenes for the last Coldplay concert of their Ghost Stories Tour at the the Royal Albert Hall as my wife is artist Mila Fürstová who created the art for Ghost Stories based on Chris Martin’s lyrics. Moments before they went on stage the band signed some editions of Mila’s art which will be auctioned to raise money for the charity Kids Company. After the signing the band invited her in the pre-show huddle, where Chris thanked her for the artwork she’s produced.

For information on purchasing editioned prints of Mila’s Coldplay work see albumartists.co.uk

An assignment for De Boer structures and & Twelve PR to provide architectural photography of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Great Pavilion 2014. I think I was the only one not primarily pointing their camera at the beautiful plants on display!

The wide angle interiors were taken with a wide angle (17mm) tilt shift lens. and the details with a 70-200mm telephoto lens. All were tripod mounted. A gentle gradient filter was applied to balance the tone of bright roof structure with the darker displays when they both appeared in the same frame.

Looks like an interesting discussion on Architectural Photography for those in London

Originally posted on The Miniclick Photo Talks:

We’re heading back to the Anise Gallery in London for our second panel discussion with them, in what we hope will become a pretty long series. Back in October 2013 we curated a panel on contemporary British landscape photography to coincide with Marc Wilson’s beautiful exhibition of his Last Stand work.

The gallery has a strong architectural leaning and in February, whilst Paul Raftery’s fantastic “Berlin Voids” exhibition is on, they’ve invited us back to put together a panel on architectural photography. Photographing architecture is an odd thing – creating two dimensional images of someone else’s work of art that is inherently intended to be experienced in three dimensions. Most buildings are seen by more people on the pages of magazines, or on blogs, than they are in person. It also has a history of being photographed empty, devoid of the people who the structure is intended to be used…

One of my photos of the old waiting room at Peckham Rye Station, London has been used as a background for a cover of “Vida la Vida” in electric violin by Carlo Cantini. They’ve used post production for adding in the musicians to the video. Renovation in progress by Benedict O’Looney Architect.
