    Honorable Mention in Architecture / Interiors

This series of photographs was taken on the London underground and depicts the architecture of various tube stations. Normally these stations are crowded with commuters and tourists alike, however my intention was to create a post-apocalyptic feel to my images and remove any unnecessary elements. My intention was to emphasise the industrial / futuristic architecture and to create a haunting ambience.

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.
