Paul Russell has recorded this street scene in the City of London with a degree of humour and quirkyness. The intereplay here is between the office worker on his cigarette break - a commonsight in the City - the brutalist architecture and the tree. Russell's street photography began to flourish when he began photographing digitally, giving him the freedom he sought. He describes his work as 'a sort of pictorial natural history and ecology of humans'.
