69 cities of the UK

Artist Carl Lavia and photographer Lorna Le Bredonchel have been collaborating on a project called ’69 cities of the UK’ since 2016. Carl, who is a London-based artist, is travelling around the UK sketching large drawings of the cities he visits, as Lorna tackles historical research, photographic research and documentation. Each piece takes 2-4 months to create, and the finished results are drawings, which from afar looks like detailed, traditional maps. Upon closer inspection, the sketches reveal an impressionist style, meant to show the complexity and rhythm of urban life.
