Architectural Minimalism

As you walk through many of the major cities of the world today, you might as well be anywhere. The globalisation of the high street has paved the way for a ubiquitous aesthetic to our cityscape.

In an already chaotic and pulsing city, can we find a moment of clarity and calm? Is there any beauty left in a modern city?

I lived in London, one of the largest city's in the world for many years and continuously sought calm by simply looking up.

The graphic edges and shapes that interplay between buildings and the calming shafts of blues-grey skies in them was a calming influence on the chaos at street level.

On a recent trip to London, I sought to photograph the moments of calm and minimalistic serenity that exists in one of the busiest cities in the world.
