The Lots Road Power Station, Chelsea Creek, London.
The Lots Road Power Station is currently being redeveloped into 260 flats with a covered “high street” containing restaurants, cafés and shops. The power station used to provide power for the London Underground and is a grade II listed building.
I took this photograph late one November evening from my kayak, while testing my new camera set-up in an underwater housing, in preparation for photographing the Thames from source to sea. It had just stopped raining but the sky still looked moody.
This image was exhibited at the Riverside Gallery in Richmond-upon-Thames as a large canvas print. The River Within – London exhibition
About the prints
These canvas prints are made by a professional lab using 12 colour UV inks printed onto 100% cotton artists canvas. The museum-quality artist’s stretcher bars, which form the frame of the print, are made using European kiln-dried knotless pine, which is extremely hard wearing and not susceptible to warping like cheaper woods are prone to do. Each bar features a rounded back edge, designed to ensure that the canvas is always kept a full ½” (13mm) above the stretcher bar to ensure that there can be no ghost impressions on the canvas. These stretcher bars also incorporate ‘wedges’ which are placed in each corner and allow the canvas to be stretched extremely tightly over the frame. It also allows the canvas to be restretched at a later date, which is particularly important for the larger size canvas prints.
So this means that these prints will not fade or sag like many cheaper canvas prints often do. If you don’t hang your print in direct sunlight or in a damp place such as a bathroom, it will last for many years.
