I don’t think I’ll ever stop liking Anna Marrow’s work, especially this selection which contain some of my absolute favourites. A powerful use of colour blocking complete with a nice juxtaposition of architectural details and nature (mainly birds, what else would do?). One could argue that her style is quite strong, almost aggressive, which won’t be for everyone but I really enjoy it especially when there’s so much flimsy and fluffy nonsense around. Yet, weirdly, the images have a particular sense of the holiday about them; the warmth of the colours, the extremes of colour contrasts inducing a ‘sun-saturated’ colour haze that’s reminiscent of far-flung exotic climes and yet the names and styles of the buildings are so very recognisable to what surrounds us everyday. This is by no means the extent of her range or her styles, so do have a look at her site, even if these don’t float your boat.
