The story behind Albion Riverside, Battersea
Most of the buildings I photograph are ones I’ve made the effort to visit. I discovered Albion Riverside, which is right next to Battersea Bridge, as I was wandering up the river after photographing Lombard Wharf.
It’s a great building, designed by Foster + Partners, who are based in the building next door. It has lots of interesting ripples and curves but you can’t capture it in one shot, at least not from this side of the river. The best approach is to find a detail that captures the essence of it. I knew exactly what I wanted here, with a sinuous curve running from corner to corner of the frame.
