"As a local resident, I love exploring the unsuspecting, and oft just walked past, unusual beauty of the Aldgate vicinity.
The mix of the urban blocks sitting side by side with the sleek, modern office towers, to me, seems to fuse two aspects of the local regeneration aspiration perfectly.
The jagged, geometric stairwells were fascinating, and after trying a few angles, I managed to capture the green and rust tinges, framed against the azure and white sky, punctured by the round lights. The enjoyment is seeing differing shapes each time it's looked at freshly."
