York Genius Loci Print

October 31, 2016

Look at any map of York and squint your eyes and you'll see Romans. Remarkably the physical blueprint of the legionary fortress first built in AD71 can still be seen amidst the modern street pattern. The epic nature of the originating street plan reverberating through time - with the pioneering boundaries still surviving like arch-historical aftershocks. 

Out of that has blossomed a city that is a joy to photograph, and I've captured York as a part of my Genius Loci Series of prints.

York is a mix of rustic reds, wonky castellations and jettied eaves, her material is brick with a dash of limestone - clay pantiles, quaterfoiled barge boards, classical balusters, and mooning gargoyles.

The print aims to convey the essence of York visually and you can see more about the Genius Loci prints (and a bit of York) in the video below

I spent several memorable days a couple of years ago photographing and time-lapsing Hexham Abbey.

For one scene of the time-lapse I spent many hours at the top of the Night Stairs mothering the camera whilst it took an image of the raking light across the transept every second.
