Thames is a series of photographic prints created by artist and photographer, Noel McLaughlin. The core theme of this body of work seeks to experience the wider river in its city surrounds and periphery, pulling focus on the power and utilities that drive its required mechanics.
Spatially the prints provoke 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 rural and urban spaces, servicing each other but at the same time creating a void or transient space” McLaughlin explains.
Throughout the work, the Thames River is a binding integer tying the aesthetic together and acting as the consistent element within a landscape we call London.
