“We took the four transparencies shown on the left and joined and manipulated them to create the final image shown above. This included removing people, cars, buses, flags, boats and their wakes from the river, hands from clockfaces etc.”

“We produced a 28 square metre backdrop for use behind the newsdesk on the Financial Times website The set was designed by Sophie Griffith of Jago Design. In addition to the day time view of the River Thames we also took a series of matching transparencies at night so that the set could be changed according to the time of day.”
