Heart of Darkness

  • Prize
    Silver in Architecture/Interior
  • Photographer
    Katherine Young

This series of photographs was taken on the London underground and depicts the architecture of various tube stations. Normally these stations are crowded with commuters and tourists alike, however my intention was to create a post-apocalyptic feel to my images and remove any unnecessary elements. My intention was to emphasise the industrial / futuristic architecture and to create a haunting ambience.

I’m an avid, amateur fine art photographer currently based in London.

I began my own journey with travel photography, aiming to capture the essence of each of the places I visited. Inspired by the contemporary environment of Singapore, I later focused my attention on cityscapes and architecture. More recently, I find myself attracted to nature and seascapes.
