PDI-1-2016_Morgan-Griffith---5_Liverpool-Library-Rooftop_G_51

This work is by Morgan Griffith member of CPS and independent film maker. I think it makes a very good photograph because there is plenty of visual interest there and yet it is ordered, clean. It is not just a record of what this piece of architecture (Liverpool Library roof) looks like, the way Morgan has framed it makes it quite abstract and you can begin to look at the items in it, and their shadows, in a new way. The granite seats seem to lead us up to the wall as an entry into the picture, helped by the fact that they start out of the frame (in it they would just be another of the items, interesting but functionless). It is frequently said that landscapes do not do well in competitions, perhaps because a general vista, unless very well captured and carefully constructed is easily and quickly appreciated with items too small to get into as we can here.
