Architectural Photography Series #5 – Simon Kennedy
For this weeks Architectural Photography Series, we are privileged to present the work of someone who is not only a talented and accomplished photography, but also a qualified and practising architect. Simon is a professional architectural photographer, working with clients including the BBC, Michael Hopkins Architects, Sheppard Robson architects, MacCormac Jamieson and Prichard Architects etc.
He is interested in ways in which photography might become in itself propositional. The images below are from his recent exhibition, “635×508 Heygate Abstracted”.
“This series of images were built up over more than a year of photographing and rephotographing specific views around the Heygate Estate, which nows stands empty and awaiting demolition. The spaces within the photographs were then analysed and augmented.
The estate was infamous when inhabited, due to numerous social problems. Now that the estate is empty, can the architecture once more show through?” Simon Kennedy
