Urban Landscape 2nd idea

Another idea that I have thought about doing for my urban landscape project is photographing cinemas, similar in style to Bernd and Hilla Becher’s ‘water towers’ series. As cinemas look so different depending on if they’re independent or not I think that I might have to choose between the two, but I am going to photograph both and see which works the best.

I have also looked at the work of Sam Nightingale who did a series of images of Islington’s lost cinemas where he photographed where cinemas used to be using a large format camera. I very much like how his images for the series are composed and the idea of looking not for cinemas that are already there but looking for where they used to be.
