Millennium Dome Greenwich, London. LPOTY commended
Millennium Dome Greenwich
Everybody knows this building; most have an image of it in their own collection. I wanted something different as it holds a collection of personal memories.
These days the Millennium Dome has a glamorous persona. I wanted to show a gutsier natural look, encompassing its roots as a reclaimed piece of land. The 12 tall posts represent each month of the year around a 365metre tent, so the plan was to show it within a grassy green environment, a tough challenge with the concrete jungle of London.
I knew of a location on the Isle of Dogs, which gave a view across the river, the tall reed grass gave the perfect foreground balance mimicking the Dome tent poles. The grass also gives the feeling that it’s stretching out, almost trying to reach and grab the Dome, pulling it back to it’s roots.
