Architectural Photography in London: King’s Cross Station by John McAslan and Partners
One cannot go through London and not stop at the newly redeveloped King’s Cross Station. The stunning work by John McAslan and partners is compelling on so many levels. Unsurprisingly, using a tripod in the station was not allowed, however, we wouldn’t be defeated that easily! We came all the way to London to photograph the station, amongst other places, and were not to be deterred. After asking a few questions around the station, we found out that one could procure a permit on location, which would grant us full access to photograph the centrepiece of the redevelopment, a vaulted, semi-circular concourse, which rises about 20m, spans a full 150m-length and is, to say the least, pretty impressive. Two days, some paperwork and an informational video later, we were let loose, tripods and cameras at the ready.
