My name is Sarah and I’m a passionate photographer.
On this blog you can find a selection of my latest pictures and graphic design work.
Since spending a year abroad as part of my modern languages degree, I have enjoyed developing my photography skills as a way to document my travels and capture how I experience my surroundings. My photography currently focuses on three main themes: landscape, street art and modern architecture, with a particular emphasis on colour, shape and perspective.
In 2011 while living in the heart of London’s financial district, I started a photography project inspired by one of London’s most striking and distinctive skyscrapers, 30 St. Mary Axe. More commonly known as ‘The Gherkin’, the building’s simple yet unique silhouette is instantly recognisable on the capital’s skyline. Covered in thousands of diamond and triangular shaped glass panels which reflect and interact with the surrounding buildings, this glittering skyscraper produces beautiful images composed of geometric patterns, architectural styles and colours from both up close and afar.
By capturing the infinite numbers of ways in which one building can be photographed, I have built up a strong portfolio of images and enjoy following how this iconic building continues to inspire the city and its people in different ways. As part of this project, I currently tweet at @LondonGherkin providing the latest commentary about this unique building in addition to promoting London’s skyline and the capital’s architecture.
Several of my photographs have been selected for competitions/blogs on The Times Online, Telegraph Online, Time Out blog, Archilovers website as well as various UK/US trade and investment publications.
