Today’s photo is a simple straight index of Beckenham Junction station. The foreground shows the tram terminus, then in the middle of the frame we see the roof of the train station and beyond that the roof and sign for Waitrose supermarket.
The angle of view I’ve taken to create a strong horizontal/vertical form. It put me in mind of Edmund Clark’s Guantanamo: If the Lights Go Out series which is one of my favourite photographic essays (link). The subject matter offers the viewer a very powerful evocation of space and place but is done so with the strong formalist approach meaning that for me the images are both windows into a world and pictures in their own right – wonderful representations of a horrid place. I hope this image works in both ways as well. That is as an index of the scene and graphically.
