Photo essay – King’s Cross railway station

My assignment at Central Saint Martins involved working with various shutter speeds to study movement. And what better place to capture this energy than at King’s Cross station?

Some of the shots were a bit shaky, as I struggled to understand ‘panning’, but hopefully, this does capture the pulsating human energy of this centre of movement within the grand centre of the world that is London.
