I was inspired to explore the theme of ‘Light and Dark’ architecturally after seeing the architectural models at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition. I developed and created my own model and photographed it in the red light of the department’s dark room. The red light creates a bold contrast and brings the geometric structure of the building right to the foreground. Subtle shadows are cast inside the building which draws the viewer to the interior details.
