Images are best viewed on the original website where their full texture and depth can be viewed in a higher resolution.
The flattened, graphic nature of the images definitely resinates with my aesthetic, years of working and lecturing as a designer have certainly had an impact on how I see and graphic shapes and textures always turn my head or cause me to position the camera square to the subject before when making a picture.
Not quite as dramatic as an amazon fulfilment centre or Kuwaiti stock exchange but the same textural and graphic impulses satisfied by Gursky, fuel my desire to make more simplistic compositions.
