Winning Work Tim Cornbill
“Oculus,” for his capture of a geometric concrete facade along the River Spree, Berlin.
Cornbill says “As an architect, I’m passionate about capturing buildings, and I’m always on the lookout for photogenic designs. I was really struck by the sheer scale of this façade and the visual impact of the circle, which I hope I’ve been able to convey in this everyday street scene, I am truly thrilled to have been recognized in the world’s largest photography competition and it will be amazing to see the photo exhibited in London.”
