At first I was drawn to mystery of the night and the enormity of the industry that feeds the largest metropolis in the world. But as I photographed and searched for images in the darkness of the night I have come to realise that what this series represents is the animal that controls and is destroying us. Man's achievements are represented by this stark dystopian world of industry. A world that is amazing for it’s achievements, advancements and power to shape and construct. It is a world that grows and grows signaling our ultimate demise.
Whilst shooting this series I have found myself at 4am in the morning surrounded by the buzzing and fumes of chemical plants that run 24/7 starting to dread the world that has been created as I realise that this all signals the planets demise. I fear that mans need to conquer, create and control is unstoppable and that it will irreversibly change this planet into the kind of world that we don't really desire. I revel in the enormity of our construction whilst feeling the horror of what it means.
