Photographer Lewis Bush's latest work, Metropole, centres around the construction sites in London, capturing them in stark black and white.

Bush's images transform the city into mesmerising shapes and patterns, something he describes as reminiscent of the abstractions of Vorticist paintings.

Bush said: "These structures typify the influx of capital and the development boom which has transformed large swathes of the city in recent years, in the process making London increasingly unequal, unaffordable, and unfamiliar for those who live here."

The work is presented in book form, in which he describes how he sees the changes to the capital as being destructive, and "homogenising the diverse communities which lived as testament to the city’s imperial past".

The names of streets he passed through would often hint at events that once took place there, events long forgotten and now invisible.

Lewis Bush studied history at the University of Warwick, and worked in public health before gaining a master’s degree in documentary photography from the London College of Communication.
