Peter Dazeley photographs of the Battersea Power Station

London-based advertising photographer, Peter Dazeley has taken a dramatic set of images of the London landmark

This situation offers a view across to the water, to the Battersea Power station; a coal-fired power station built in two stages in the 1930s and 1950s and subsequently closed in 1975.

The power station was made famous by Pink Floyd’s 1977 ‘Animals’ album cover. Quite appropriately, it is now a home form all sorts of wildlife - thousands of pigeons, families of foxes, rats and peregrine falcons.

Dazeley reflects, ‘It seems so sad that such a magnificent building has ended up in its present state; and the series of photographs [will] give a taste of its former splendour’.
