Streets of London

2018, digital photography, broken and
disassembled lenses

 

Streets of London presents urban street views captured with optical aberrations from broken and disassembled lenses 50 mm f/1.8, 50 mm f/1.4, 24 mm f/2.8. These "particles" are the reflected lights of the city, emitted by street lamps, cars, displays and spotlights.

 

The optical aberration is the distortion of light which photo technicians treated as a fault and did away with as early as the nineteenth century. In the sequence, these irregularities mix the reality that is the genuine one to the human eye with the optical reality that arises when the light falls into the photographer's hands and deviates from its straight path.
