Peter Defty's unusual typography project, which he named as the Geordie Alphabet, is composed of negative spaces between architectural monuments.

Defty demonstrates admirable artistry by not only exhibiting his creative perceptive in these photographs but also being able to compose them within a meaningful project.

His unusual typography art is based on shapes that he recognized as letters and photographed all around the city. It is an interesting take on conceptual photography and the fact that he uses it as a typography project is unusual and witty.

The photographs merely look like city photography at first sight and when observed individually. Though once looked at from a distance and as a whole group, the composition of negative space with monumental interruptions make perfect letter shapes as well as perfect sense as an alphabet project.
