Open Cambridge pt.1 Corpus Christi College

Open Cambridge pt.1 Corpus Christi College

September 26, 2019

As I am wondering around the world a little less at the moment I am really enjoying my home town and for the first time got to a chance to visit Open Cambridge. I had an amazing time and over two days visited eight places. One place I went was The Parker Library at Corpus Christi College where I took this picture. 

In 1987 I photographed John Rylands Library as part of my Ordinary Places Series,  and took one of my most successful pictures 'Book'. In that picture, like this one you cannot tell what the book is or where it was taken, but these books housed in these unbelievably important historical buildings are the finer details of these unique special collections.

Artwork Description

Although we always try to send out your order as quickly as possible the artwork might take two weeks to make. If you require it urgently for a gift or interior design project get in touch before placing your order and we will advise on availability and options.

Conventionally all our framed work is dry-mounted onto aluminium. This ensures a very flat image surface in the short and the long term. The prints are matted (window mounted) using a museum quality 100% cotton rag board especially manufactured to be compatible with the C-type archival Kodak photographic paper Richard uses. He makes the prints in his own dark room. The print sizes are taken from traditional photographic paper sizes. Traditionally with photographic prints they are signed and numbered on the back, they can be signed on the front of the mount by request.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SIZING AND SHIPPING COMING SOON. IN THE MEANTIME GET IN TOUCH WITH ANY QUESTIONS.

Please note when ordering artwork for shipping to Australia it may be subject to import duty which is your responsibility.
