suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
william ECKERSLEY: It is a collection of large format images that I’ve shot over the last four years depicting the urban environment at night. London tends to covered by clouds, so daylight is flat, diffused and grey. At night however, you find sharp areas of light and shade in sometimes sickly colour temperatures from all the different light sources (sodium, halogen, fluorescent, etc). With the eerie lack of humanity, it’s also possible to view the urban environment without it’s inherent purpose of serving and facilitating human life, and so revealing to me questions about its “genius or folly, beauty or ugliness.”
