Reflecting the Urban World

In a landscape of stone and glass the easiest way to achieve a winder view is to capture the urban landscape though reflections. With reflections you can bend light and capture a view further around the corner, out of reach to the photographer or  view what is happening behind what has been chosen to be captured. Reflections can also be utilised to covertly capture a moment indirectly.


The view I was wanting to capture was the graffiti that could be seen through a classroom. the classroom and the graffiti have now been demolished . In shooting through the window and metering for the graffiti I was able to get a clear image of the buildings being reflected in the window. For me this reflection gives context to the image, informing the viewer of the the surrounding area that the subject matter.
