Languid London Shoots

This Alva Bernadine Photo Series Portrays the City in a Strange Light

— March 20, 2012 — World
In this Alva Bernadine photo series, London takes on a wonky, almost psychedelic quality. The photographs depict the metropolis more in the style of the Beatles’s ‘Abbey Road’ than that of the buttoned-up bankers who populate the city.

The technique used in the Alva Bernadine photo series is such that shapes are twisted and disproportionate, as though reflections in a carnival fun-house. Big Ben is severely bent out of shape, looming ominously over the foreground. The atmosphere of the series is generally uneasy. The surreal aspect of the photographs entice the viewers sense of curiosity; however, the almost alien perspective invites a sense of suspicion as well.

This series provides a fresh perspective on an ancient city.
Trend Themes
1. Psychedelic Photography - The Alva Bernadine photo series showcases a new trend in photography that uses twisted and disproportionate shapes to create a psychedelic effect.
2. Surreal Urban Depictions - The photo series presents a trend in depicting cities with a surreal and distorted perspective, creating an uneasy and curious atmosphere.
3. Reimagining Historical Landmarks - By bending and distorting famous landmarks like Big Ben, the photo series explores a trend of reimagining historical sites in unconventional ways.
Industry Implications
1. Photography - Photographers and artists can embrace the trend of psychedelic photography and experiment with twisted and disproportionate shapes in their work.
2. Architecture and Urban Planning - Architects and urban planners can draw inspiration from the surreal and distorted urban depictions in the photo series to create imaginative and unconventional designs.
3. Travel and Tourism - The reimagining of historical landmarks in the photo series presents an opportunity for the travel and tourism industry to promote unique and unconventional experiences for visitors.
