The Spiral

During my recent visit in London I finally had a chance to visit Tate Modern museum of modern art, which was the only great museum in London, I hadn’t visited before.

Tate Modern museum has a truly amazing collection of modern art and you can spend a few hours there if you’re into modern art. And even if you’re not, as a photographer you will certainly appreciate the building in which the museum is located. The building is former power station and it is really impressive and monumental – for instance so called turbine hall has dimensions of 155 meters long x 23 meters wide x 35 meters high! Also a lot of bricks, concrete and steel makes it a great place to take some architectural images.

Today I would like to share one of the staircases I found while wondering there. I really loved spiral shape, all those vertical and horizontal lines and the way light played on the walls.

Taking photo and post-processing

As soon as I saw this scene I immediately knew I will convert the photos to black and white to make all those textures and fantastic light pop.

Please note there is no before/after comparison today as it doesn’t make much sense in case of black & white photos in my opinion. Differences between before & after image are always significant in such case.
