An editorial feature focused on power stations in London was published in the Observer Magazine, (“Powerhouses” – 17 June 2001).
All 20×16″ silver gelatin prints are hand-printed and toned by myself and are available for purchase. Prints are held in private collections in South Africa and the project has been widely exhibited both in South Africa and in the UK.
