A member of staff from LHC’s Plymouth studio has proven she has a keen eye for photography after securing the runner-up spot in the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) South West photography competition. Hannah Wadman, Administrator at LHC came second in the competition with her photograph taken at a veg stall market in Plymouth.
The competition called for entrants to celebrate Plymouth’s City Centre, and attracted entries from across the South West.
“When people think of Plymouth they might think of iconic places such as the lighthouse, the old council building, the water fountain or Drake Circus. Often the other end of town away from the redevelopment gets overlooked with people saying it needs regenerating, but in recent months I’ve noticed a lot of new businesses starting up in that area, in particular independent shops and cafes.
“Whenever I take pictures I am keen to capture life, so I focus on people opening up their shops or enjoying food and drink in cafés. The photo I entered was taken at 9 o’clock on a weekday morning and shows a vegetable stall in the market receiving a delivery, I chose this image because I like the texture of the rust on the crate alongside the rounded ceiling of the market complete with the industrial-style lights.”
