Richard Baker’s Airport Photography

photo by Richard Baker

British photographer Richard Baker spent time in London’s Heathrow Airport taking photographs for a book by Alain de Botton called A Week at the Airport: a Heathrow Diary. He was asked to document aspects of the airport including travel and behind the scenes. Baker did an amazing job of capturing patterns, silhouettes, and different moods. Of all the photos he took, a huge collection were not even published in the book, and he chose to share them on his website.

Notice the interesting shapes he captures by carefully choosing his composition and angle. By using repetition of shapes and lines, he draws the viewer’s eye into the photograph.
