Lucie and Simon's Silent World

Photographers Lucie & Simon have produced these beautiful images of how some of the worlds busiest places would look without people and cars. It creates a surreal world that is both calming and unsettling, but most interestingly this photography series shifts the focus. The landscapes depict places that thousands of eyes has graced over and stopped ‘seeing’. As designers we remind ourselves to really ‘see’ our environment, the mundane of the morning bus trip is filled with designers inspiration gold. These photos are a great reminder of the haphazard beauty of out surroundings.The photography technique uses a long exposure and neutral destiny filter that removes moving objects while maintaining solid structures. The textures and shapes of streets, buildings become the hero revealing what really lies beneath an uninhabited cityscape.
