‘Architectural Anomalies’ is a series of images which explore the tucked away corners of urban spaces. These odd corners are all the more fascinating because they are not conceived as high architecture and often appear to serve no functional purpose. They are the happen-chance leftovers, the architectural anomalies which appear to deviate from the norm.
This series links in with similar themes I have been working on: ‘Conceptualising Car Parks,’ ‘Incidental Corners,’ ‘Geometric Spaces’ and ‘Concrete Thinking.’ In common with these other works in progress they are gathered from the mostly subterranean, concrete urban environment and seek to shed light upon what are largely forgotten and pissed in corners.
There is something both futuristic and ancient about these cavernous spaces. As habitats they are cruelly forbidding, lithic and angular. But, as photographic subject, when scrutinised closely, they reveal themselves to be deeply fascinating non-places.
