      • A 17th Century Chandelier is installed in St.George's, Bloomsbury

        I was commissioned to document the installation of a chandelier in Hawksmoor's St.George's, Bloomsbury by the World Monuments Fund. The chandelier is nearly contemporary with the opening of the church, and had been languishing in the V&A's vaults until David Gundry of the WMF brought a team together to bring it back into use. This was shot on both the Sony EX1 and with a 45mm tilt shift lens on a Nikon D80 Stills Camera. I think the difference in lens quality is clear, much as I love the EX cameras. Shooting stills at a resolution of 3872 x 2592 gives so much latitude to move around the shot whilst maintaining a 1080 output.

                      Ani, a dramatic, windswept archaeological site in eastern Turkey, was once a thriving medieval city on the trade route through Central Asia. At its height, Ani had a population of well over 100,000, and was the rival of Constantinople, Baghdad, and Cairo. Once renowned for its splendor and magnificence, Ani has been abandoned and largely forgotten for centuries. Its remaining architecture, built primarily in the tenth century, is historically significant as it anticipates features that became the defining characteristics of the Byzantine and later Gothic styles. World Monuments Fund’s current scope of work is focusing on the ruins of two great religious structures there: Ani Cathedral and The Church of the Holy Savior.
