Cities from a Different Point of View: Formidable Photography
17 Sep 2013|
Here at Currys PC World, we often take the time to appreciate many of the top photography blogs out there on the Internet. So we thought that now was a great time for us to put a spotlight on one of our favourite bloggers at the moment: Mark McGowan a.k.a. Formidable Photography.
Mark McGowan is particularly renowned for taking photographs of Liverpool and its surrounding area, and has been doing so for the last 5 years. His photos strive to show cities from a different point of view, and predominantly focus on architecture, graffiti, and urban landscapes.
His work has been featured in a number of reputable publications, including the New Statesman, Digital Photographer, N-Photo, Liverpool Daily Post, and the Liverpool Echo.
Our Favourite Photos
1. The Liverpool Skyline
Arguably one of the more contentious features in the Liverpool is the Radio City Tower. But in this shot it stands beautifully framed between the two buildings in the foreground. The ominous clouds overhead are also very detailed in black and white.
Sure... this picture may have caught our attention because it was named after a rather famous song by a rather famous band from Liverpool. But once you look closely, you can appreciate the detail on the people's faces as well as the lovely Liverpool skyline in the background.
3. LFC- First Game of the Season
Going to a football game is always great, and we really love how this photo captures the magic of football fandom. The man in the picture is Brian, and as well as his dozens of badges, he's also got 85 Liverpool shirts at home.
4. Mini Graffitti
Here's a different take on the graffiti Grafton Street, which is reflected in the back window of a Mini. We liked this photo as it really encapsulates Mark's attitude to photography, with a focus on graffiti and a different point of view via the reflection.
5. Superlambanana Silhoutte
This is a great shot of the "Superlambanana" silhouetted against the Liverpool museum. It really shows how Liverpool is a great city for culture, art, and learning.
