A while back now, I came across the work of Swedish artist, Anastasia Savinova and her Genius Loci. A series of architectural collages intended to grasp the identity of a city or place through its architectural consistency. While this work deserves a spotlight all on its own, I wanted to highlight a few of my own compositions, which, much like Anastasia’s, intended to capture the essence of a place through a photographic montage.
These images formed part of a critical essay, written in 2014, demonstrating the (largely negative) experience of walking the Thames Path through central London. An exercise in psychogeography, phenomenology and spatial autonomy in the city.
