Theatre

London theatres and concert Halls are celebrated the world over - But more for the performances they house than for the buildings themselves. Photographer Steve Harries has long been fascinated by these spaces and their architectural diversity, from ornate rococo indulgence to high-tech modernism. "I like to document locations as they are not intended to be seen - in this case, void of people," He says. So we are at the Royal Festival Hall, strewn with the orchestra's vacated chairs, or the multicoloured plush of the curtains at the savoy, and the secret code of coloured floor markings - The stage blockings that indicate where the performances should stand - which through harries' camera appear more like an abstract painting. Welcome to theatre land, a beautiful mysterious place.
