London: empty

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. Free expression, such as graffiti or the unauthorized hanging of posters in the public space is punishable by law. 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.”
