Metropole documents the transformation of London at the hands of property developers and speculators. In it the glittering new luxury high rises of London are layered over each other using multiple exposures, creating a disorientating dystopian vision of the city.
Inkjet printing (sometimes known as giclée) is an art printing process, where tiny dots of ink are sprayed through a series of nozzles on to paper. The result is exceptional detail and a wider colour gamut than is possible with traditional photographic C-type prints.
