I’ve been photographing a particular view – the view out my kitchen window – for the past nine months. I started in mid October 2016, at the height of Autumn and intend to carry on for a complete year. Beyond using the same camera and lens there is no rule or methodology. The inspiration is a particular light, atmosphere, cloud formation; the intent is to capture a particular fleeting and transient moment. Increasingly these transient moments have involved a chance spotting of men and machinery on the the train tracks whilst electrification work takes place on the Gospel Oak to Barking Line. The images below have been taken at dawn, dusk, midday, in rain, snow, dazzling sunlight and fog. I am also curious to see the processes of change unfold, and the interplay of nature, construction and urban development in this specific cityscape.
Here’s the picture I took yesterday marking 9 months of the project:
