LONDON β€” A new book is exploring London’s landscape from its uppermost heights. Urban explorers Bradley L. Garrett, Alexander Moss and Scott Cadman spent seven years exploring the city’s subterranean architecture and now in London Rising they’ve turned their attention to the birds eye views that are generally not accessible to the average inhabitant.

The result of seeing these “iconic” buildings from high and unfamiliar angles gives London industrialism an otherworldly eeriness, and makes for a startling intimate portrait of a faceless city.

“Our images of London’s infrastructural, social and corporate heights do not resonate because they are spectacular but because they are intimate,” London Rising says. “They are about loving relationships with the place.”
