© Robert Graves and Didier Madoc-Jones, aerial photograph by Jason Hawkes
The bold composition of Thames Tidal Power was inspired by a photograph of fishing huts perched above the waters of the Gironde in France by French aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. a striking image of graphic quality and dramatic contrast between light and dark. Combined with separate research into water turbines in Canada and New York, Graves and Madoc-Jones created an image that encapsulated the immense tidal power of the Thames. Using Jason Hawkes’ photograph of the Thames Barrier as a foundation, they dotted a series of tidal turbines around the Barrier, to create a striking uniform pattern. Focusing attention on the force of the river is a clear reminder of the tides that once literally powered London via Bankside and Battersea.
