The intention of this portfolio is to document the beauty and elegance of many of the outdoor clocks around London.
While rarely noticed by most people, if you wander through the streets of London you will barely need to step a few paces before you will see a clock hanging above. And once you start looking they are everywhere. Time simply ticks by, and we hardly take notice of it.
Yet if you take the time to do so, you will appreciate the intricate detail, design perfection and historical significance of many of the clocks around the city. The portfolio will reflect this by including a variety of clocks, ranging from ancient sundials to newer clocks, and from small hidden clocks through to national icons such as Big Ben. They are illustrated both by close-ups showing fine details but also in their natural environment.
