Black and White Urban Scenes

Charles Brabin is a self-taught British photographer – a scientist by background with a focus on urban and industrial environments, as well as landscapes and the natural world. Charles was born in 1986 in Liverpool, England. Drawn to patterns, contrasts and textures, in his current project, ‘Seeing the Unseen’, he seeks out the inherent beauty in our everyday surroundings which so often goes unnoticed.

In my work I attempt to combine my own attraction to patterns, contrasts and textures with the unique view on the world which the camera offers: photographs can capture the dynamism of the environment which our eyes struggle to discern; they can show us our surroundings in the absence of colour, highlighting shapes and differences in light and shade; they can reveal the details of seemingly pitch black nightscapes. Through the camera we can appreciate the elements of our environment which often remain unseen, creating a window onto a new, attractive and fascinating world.
