A short pictorial tour of post-modernist buildings in the East London docks.
I’m so going to be using the word ‘Bimble’ from now on - great pics - IOD is an interesting area - the problem is that I still think of the 80’s as being quite recent!!!
Amazing photos, congratulations!
I was looking forward to seeing this since you shared you were there photographing. I find this area of London very surreal.
Very good shots, Andrew, especially the first two. It almost looks like you used a tilt-shift lens, but you were probably far enough away from the towers to get a nice elevational view.
Many of the best post modern architects were very skilled at making architectural renderings (or, perhaps, their assistants were). The use of watercolours and prismacolor pencils brought colour back into architecture before money was available to build their renderings (following the oil crisis and the recession). I think the work of that period (70s-80s) is an interesting case study of the relationship between the tools and media used to visualise and communicate ideas and the final, realised buildings.
This is so well done, Andrew. The compositions are beautiful and what an opportunity to learn. Thank you for sharing.
How cool!! Would love to visit this area sometime
Such a brilliant photo essay, Andrew.
I believe the correct response to Photo number 2 would be an operatic and demonstrative chef's kiss.
