Broken Glass

I took a series of photos in Clapham Junction a couple of days after the extraordinary riots that took place on the high street. I was looking for shattered glass, which was easy to find, and the cobweb like shapes it makes.

At that time, there were international film crews shooting reporters against the back drop of the burnt out party shop and there were many glass fitters at work replacing shop fronts.

By coincidence,  I am researching the look of shattering glass for a motion graphics project. This lead me to this post on The Art of the Title. It is a title sequence for John Carpenter’s The Ward. The glass is CGI.
