A stunning photograph of the London landscape taken at the top of the iconic BT Tower by a 14-year old has been picked as the winning entry in a photography competition.
Haider Romero Perez’s image shone above many entries by more experienced, older students is now featured on the cover of BT’s new “Together for a Better London” publication
The image entitled Brave, which was taken looking south towards Battersea Power Station was described by judges as “capturing the vibrancy of London from the top of the tower.”
Haider, who specialises in digital media at Hackney University Technical College in Kingsland High Street, Shoreditch, took part in the photography competition as part of a school project.
“Something clicked when I found out I’d won the competition and it’s helped me discover something; it told me I can be a bigger person than I am now and that I can achieve if I try hard enough,” said Haider, who lives in Clapton.
