London-based photographer Matthew Richards has offered some solace from Hurricane Sandy in his detailed snapshots of New York City. Flags and skyscrapers come to life via his black and white snapshots.
These simple yet detailed urban pictures are placed upon crinkly leaves. The veins and cracks of the plants are perceptible alongside the images of taxi cabs and lit up high rise windows, providing an interesting fusion of nature with urban activity.
While Richards has already established a distinct brand and artistic method, his current studies at the London College of Communication will continue to expand his portfolio and expertise. His work is complex, making few if any compromises where precision is concerned. Far more can be anticipated down the line.
