Richard Heeps photographing a Church in Cambridge

Tin Tabernacle, Cambridge, 2019

September 02, 2019

I have passed the Tin Tabernacle on the road through Fen Ditton in Cambridge, many times and always said that I must photograph it. It really reminds me of a roadside chapel in America, especially the way it stands in such an isolated position. The sun was shining on the Friday of the UK August Bank Holiday so I loaded my camera gear into my van and headed to the church to finally photograph it. 

It was interesting how many people passing the church stopped to chat and as I was leaving the vicar appeared and invited us into the church, he told us it's history, and about its recent restoration.

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.
