This was the third time I have photographed Antony Gormley’s Another Place statues, but this time it was at very low tide. Just as we parked I could see this P&O ferry sailing across in front of the statues, so I jumped out of the car and zoomed in. I really like the sense of scale with the ferry against the statue. The texture on the sand of low tide also add to this image in my opinion.
The clown faced Superlambanana is one of the eight for ’08 which are currently on The Strand, in front of the Cunard and Liver Buildings in Liverpool. After one original bright yellow sculpture, 125 individually designed replicas were created and dotted around the city in 2008 as part of the European Capital of Culture year. It was the bright colours and fun clown themed design that made me capture the above photograph.
Photographing buildings has always been a great interest of mine from a very early age, but I have recently become infatuated with the demolition of buildings. The above photograph was captured whilst walking down a main street in Liverpool. I can only guess what this building was and the stories it holds. Even the “public” sign seems to have an air of mystery about it. Surely it didn’t just say public, possibly public entrance? Who knows!
This statue (which I presume is the Virgin Mary) is set into the wall of Liverpool’s John Moores University building on Hope Street. I thought that the small arch detailing and two windows each side of the statue really added to the image. Unfortunately I couldn’t get the perfect angle as I was stood at street level and this was either on the first or second floor level of the building.
