London’s landmark buildings revisited


The haunting and often daunting beauty of some of London’s most iconic buildings is the theme of a new exhibition by Islington fine art photographer Maria Tejada.


Landmark buildings familiar to many Londoners are revisited with a striking, new vision, celebrating their stunning architectural achievement yet also identifying a sense of their mystery, power and eerie strangeness.


“’I’m fascinated by the beauty of these buildings, at the same time as being slightly disturbed by the power and money they represent,” explains Tejada, citing the cinematography of Film Noir and Alfred Hitchcock as significant influences on her work.


For Tejada, who has lived in Islington for the last 14 years, the exhibition marks a new departure following a successful 27-year career running the popular First Out café bar in the West End.

'Another Point of View’ includes images of More London, the Brunswick Centre, the Royal Opera House and One London Bridge, as well as pictures from North Yorkshire and Tejada’s native Castile region of Spain.


The exhibition is hosted by the Black Olive Cooks at the Lumen Café, 88 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9RS and runs from // October 2016 to // January 2017, open Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 4.30pm.
