Mark Power: A Wider View

One of my influences is the photography of Mark Power. His work has a brilliant simplicity and, rather than go into a narrow focus on architectural detail, pulls back to show a more contextual approach. Here the parts of the A380 Airbus (his series on the construction of the French aeroplane, 2008) contrasts exquistly with the colourless ceiling and the myriad of lines which in turn has the effect of making these heavy plane parts seem as if they are just light objects dangling as if from a mobile. It’s a great juxtaposition which is achieved by looking at ojects from a wider view.
