This was a commission for Borough Market to celebrate its long history in the Southwark area. The Market is estimated to have been around in various forms since 1014 and I was asked to create a picture to reflect this.

The Market's iconic roofing structure is used to divide the image into segments from medieval to present day and features Old London Bridge, Southwark Cathedral, and the modern Market.
