As far as I am concerned, there are two types of people in this world. City-dwellers who love all things concrete, urban and high-rise and country dwellers who don’t. I am the latter – I’d swap rolling fields for car parking lots and urban landscapes any day and quite frankly I struggle to find the beauty in office buildings. But against all odds photographer David Sopronyi has won me over with his latest urban photography project West Way and so I admit it – cities can be beautiful!
Consisting of 59 stunning photographs centred around London’s Westway, David captures the very essence of west London in a beautifully reflective and tender way. With his use of natural lighting, attention to the changing seasons and subtle colours, the result will make even the most country of people have a bit of a soft-spot for the charming capital.
So whatever your affiliation, country or the city, feast your eyes on David Sopronyi’s photography and I promise you that it won’t fail to impressive.
