St. Paul’s Cathedral. London. 2011.


Between 2010 and 2012 Peter Marlow photographed the naves of all 42 of England’s Anglican cathedrals using only natural light at dawn. The task was a considerable challenge and Marlow was particularly concerned that the scale should be right. Marlow said: “It was important for me to keep a sense of the relative size of each nave, since some were enormous and others not. To do this, I used exactly the same elevation on the ladders and tripod, and kept the lens at a constant focal length.” Pictured here, St. Paul’s Cathedral.
