High Street and Saltmarket

A series of mostly black and white photographs of urban/street scenes and architecture on High Street and the Saltmarket at the Eastern edge of the city centre in Glasgow, Scotland.

This project follows on from the style of the Glasgow 5.6 project, using the same composition and processing techniques with telephoto lens and shallow depth of field to alter the perception of scale of the scenes. The images have been rendered primarily in black and white so as to accentuate the forms of the compositions without distracting colours.

Traffic on High Street near the intersection with Duke Street and George Street. An optical illusion has been created by the composition - these cars appear to be going downhill but they are in fact going uphill.
