German artist Gregor Graf strips his photography of London down to just architecture.
“The city as a living space is today no longer shaped by the individuals who inhabit it. At the textural level – with words, symbols, logos, directional and traffic signs, commands and prohibitions-the only elements allowed are those that serve the end of law or consumption.

The real city is increasingly becoming a personality-drained world of corporations and branding, coupled with the proliferation of rigorous regulations dictating how individuals are expected to behave.”
