urban art now


I’ve been looking into Urban Photography for my A level art project on human trace, I’m fascinated by the way you can see the history and atmosphere of a long abandoned place even with the absence of people. After tons of research and planning I managed to get into the abandoned Haggerston Baths. I couldn’t stay for very long which was a shame as I would have liked to have a better look around but I still love the photos that I got out of it. The only problem I’m having with this photoset is that my art teachers keep telling me to push the photos in a direction and to do something else with them but I’m at a loss for ideas. If anyone has any ideas I’d really appreciate hearing them.

“Right now fear, doubt, anxiety, tension and disharmony are reigning supreme. But there shall come a time when this world of ours will be flooded with peace. Who is going to bring about this radical change? It will be you: you and your sisters and brothers. You and your oneness-heart will spread peace throughout the length and breadth of the world.” * Sri Chinmoy – found in Prenzlauer Berg
