After I’d finished at the Natural History Museum today I popped across the road to the Victoria and Albert Museum. A new wing, designed by architect Amanda Levete, opened in 2017 and I wanted to take a quick look before heading home. The main gallery lies below ground, housing an exhibition about cars at the moment – the only excuse I need to return when time allows to see both the exhibition and the architecture!
Above ground, the courtyard was open so I spent a few minutes looking for dramatic shapes in the dark. The strong contrast of light and shade worked well and I took care to wait for the right moment so as to include a human element too.
