Thames: Heart of London is a panoramic photographic exhibition that aims to capture the character of the Thames as it winds through the metropolis.
Taken from a series of high vantage points, including the Shard, City Hall, Oxo Tower Wharf, One Canada Square, South Bank Tower and the Houses of Parliament, these images also capture unique events when the river was centre stage to London life – from the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant to the fireworks celebrations for New Year’s Eve.
Each panoramic picture is made by combining up to a hundred individual images to create a final piece with exceptional detail and clarity to catch the mood and flavour of these startling vistas.
About the Artist
Henry Reichhold was born in New York and spent time in both Cuba and Switzerland before settling in the United Kingdom. Now based in London, he is a photographer who has worked extensively with both mobile imaging and super high resolution travel images.
Educated at Dartington College of Arts and University of Warwick, Henry took his love of painting into the digital world by merging pointillism and pixels to create a vibrant style that was to be featured on the covers of many photographic journals. The results of Henry’s style is that his images, whether taken with a mobile phone or a high resolution camera, are pieces which capture the spirit and atmosphere of his subjects, be it ballet, cityscapes or huge panoramic images. What sets his work out from others’ is an ability to capture the elusive and intangible – his challenge is always to take the camera’s machine eye view and use it as a tool that both entertains and inspires.
His work has been seen by millions with a series of exhibitions at Heathrow Terminal 5, as well as the Royal Albert Hall, Tower Bridge, Dubai Airport, the Theatre Museum, the Atrium Gallery, 'Second life’, the Loading Bay Gallery, Armory Arts Center in Los Angeles and Nokia HQ.
