London is known for its breathtaking architecture, yet by the time it’s passed the lens of photographer EMCN, the drama is increased tenfold. Real name Edward Neumann, his ability to process panes of glass, sheets of metal and mounds of stone into dynamic imagery is impressive, resulting in a portfolio of staggering work that brings the city to life.
Even though they’re taken from below, his series ‘Up’ gives you vertigo with its overwhelming sense of depth. ‘Symmetry’ is comprised of photos so obsessively even that they could be computerised. ‘Structure’ exposes every curve, line and angle that make up these incredible buildings, highlighting the less obvious details that make a piece of architecture something special in the first place. Whatever the series, EMCN’s photography elevates already fascinating structures into something somehow more beautiful, all while freezing their aesthetic in time – an important act in a city with an ever-changing architectural landscape.
