In this series called Elements, I focus my attention on the detail of various buildings. In each case, I was drawn to the texture of the structures' exterior and the way they rendered light and shadow. I used Chinese Elements of water, wood, fire, earth and metal - the five-fold conceptual scheme that many traditional Chinese fields use, to explain a wide array of phenomena - to capture the distinct elements of each building.

Katherine Young is a fine art photographer currently based in London. Her interest in photography started at an early age however it has only been in the last four years that Katherine took her hobby more seriously. Katherine’s real passion is black-and-white photography as she feels that monochromatic images have a surreal and timeless quality which leaves a striking impact on the viewer. Without the distraction of colour, the photograph looks cleaner and reveals the very soul of the subject.
