Station Road Industrial Estate, Dunmow

Something a bit different… I have been enjoying a style of photography called Topographic Photography and particularly how human activity affects the natural landscape – this style began back in the 70’s with photographers like Robert Adams and was continued during the 90’s by the likes of Andreas Gursky – he of the most expensive photograph bought in an auction fame. 

So I was taking a stroll around Great Dunmow on Sunday with this in mind and came across this view of Station Road Industrial Estate which, I felt, kind of fit the brief…

Station Road Industrial Estate, Dunmow

I like the row of terraces, the row created by the industrial building, the road and then the tree line, all topped off with the countryside and then the sky in the background. When I walked down to the estate I enjoyed the buildings themselves

Lines and lines and lines

5 to 6

Different lines and angles with different perspectives


Surveillance everywhere…

Red White and Blue

Red, white and blue.

I’ll certainly be exploring more of this style of photography in the new year.
