double light at UTC@Harbourside

Posted by carlotta on Tuesday January 6th, 2015 at 4:14pm

My latest visit to UTC@Harbourside building site in Newhaven was on another winter afternoon with the sun glowing low in the sky. Inside the Carpenter’s Workshop, I was disoriented by the way the sunlight was bouncing off the interior space. It reminded me of how light can shimmer and shift on the walls of a swimming pool. It was not until I was home and examining my photos that I guessed the source of the confusing light. The sun must have been bouncing off the surface of the river that flows right outside the building. The windows were being lit by the low setting sun as well as by the reflections off the water. I loved how this created doubles of the beautiful arched shapes on the brick walls. I then noticed another set of doubles. The sun was low enough to cast shadows of the two brick layers so that the men and their silhouettes were almost side by side. More photos from this shoot can be found here. More information about this project can be found here.
