A commission from a London property and surveying company to document restoration work in progress on several of their key projects.
These included an architectural gem of a Victorian pumping station in East London. The stone cleaning of the front of a London Livery hall and a very unique school chapel ceiling in North London.
The brief was to keep the images natural, with minimal, if any intervention or direction to the subjects. Natural reportage to be used to promote their work, within their marketing materials.
An open brief, to work with the contractors on site, to document how and where they worked. The aim was to give the images a ‘photo-journalistic’ style – I would approach each shoot, as I did for broadsheet newspapers and my editorial magazine work, looking for images that captured the key features of a site and the different work involved.
