This is a series comprising three images of famous London landmarks with equally famous bridges found in their vicinity. Part I depicts St Paul's Cathedral and the Millennium Bridge, part II, Big Ben and Westminster Bridge and finally part III, The Tower of London and Tower Bridge. My intention was to lead the viewer's eye to the relevant parts of the frame and to de-emphasise all other 'clutter'. I chose long exposure to give my images a more surreal and ethereal feel.

Katherine Young is a fine art photographer currently based in London. 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.
