Mukkers you may not be my fave person at the mo ;), but this is one of the best pics Ive seen in ages, it reminds me alot of the new gallery stuff we're seeing at the mo (I'm into the conceptual photo-art scene). The kinds of pics normally taken with a lomo or an old Eighties camera.
In other words no postcard image (that would kill its value), but a feeling that counts far more than anything prescribed and anything obvious.
This is not a picture of a city or buildings or smoke coming out of buildings at dawn, if you catch my drift, its a picture of lone-ness/ quietude/ the reality of a sense of place combined with a sense of self.
This could easily be what you'd call a self portrait nowadays:
Not only does it capture something metaphysical or subtly evocative - yet realistic, it happens to be visually attractive too. The outline of the gherkin is a thing of beauty. The sense of privacy is too.
This is why imo it works on different levels more so than the usual emotive pics on postcards and the usual conceptual-realist pics on East End gallery walls.
