Thames view is a series of photographic prints created by artist and photographer Noel McLaughlin.
This work seeks to fully capture the wider river in its city surrounds and periphery, pulling focus on the power and utilities that drives the cities required mechanics. Spatially the prints evoke questions as to how a city functions from periphery to core.
“I was interested in the border-line and how the city consumes the landscape, there is this non space that exists between both the rural and urban spaces, servicing each other but at the same time creating a void or transient space’”.
Throughout this work The Thames River is a binding integer tying the landscape and acting as a consistent element that holds the city together. The rivers utlitity may have changed over the ages but its iconic status remains just as much a part of the London narrative as it did when Charles Dickens stomped her streets - it would be hard to imagine the city without the Ebb and flow of the river.
