About the Work
"I find this photograph equally disorientating and mesmerising. The play of sunlight on this building’s glass veneer creates a warped reflection of the cityscape and distance horizon behind the photographer. It is simultaneously opaque and transparent; protective yet exposing; comfortable and alienating."
