Photo Flash: Shining a Light on the Dark Theatres of the West End

pixeltracker

While West End theatres remain dark, photographer Troy David Johnston, who is normally employed in the wardrobe department at Wicked, is shining a spotlight on what remains of the usually bustling streets of London.

"With the closure of the West End theatres, I decided I needed something practical to do." says Johnston. "So I would take my camera with me when I went out cycling for my allowance of exercise time. And usually I was cycling through Central London. As I cycled through the quiet streets, I started taking pictures of our closed theatres."

Below, check out Troy's stunning, ongoing photo series, titled 'Going Dark'. To purchase prints or check out more of Troy's images, visit: https://troydavidjohnston.picfair.com/.
