With enigmatic subjects steeped in jewel‑toned, ethereal light, Robi Rodriguez casts London in an alternative reality with a calm and sober beauty, introducing figures at odds with their surroundings into the frame. In this palpably intense atmosphere, London becomes the backdrop and its inhabitants the players in a narrative on the margins of everyday life. Through its play of shadows and light, together with its assertive sequencing, punctuated by the bridges straddling the Thames, this series of images compels us to acknowledge the city’s majesty.
