Photography from the heights of the Eye comes with a few drawbacks – many people can fit into a capsule and they may well hinder your view or simply get in the way.

The thick glass of the pod often leads to unwanted reflections and distortion. And it was so dirty and watermarked that crystal clear shots were in some cases impossible. I decided to make them a feature of the photograph – I’ve become quite fond of them…
