    Honorable Mention in Architecture / Buildings

The motivation for this series was to capture the ‘relationship’ between different buildings located across from each other and forming part of the City of London. They provide office space for many of the City’s workers but despite their common function, their form sets them apart. Each is made from different materials and exhibits very distinct shape that further enhances the individuality and diversity of their architects’ vision. The decision to include subtle streaks of light in the images is to make them more dynamic, bringing those buildings to life.

Katherine Young is an avid fine art amateur photographer. Her interest in photography started at an early age however it has only been in the last four years that Katherine took her hobby more seriously. Katherine’s real passion is black-and-white photography as she feels that monochromatic images have a surreal and timeless quality which leaves a striking impact on the viewer. Without the distraction of colour, the photograph looks cleaner and reveals the very soul of the subject.
