Liverpool Library

Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 17 July 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

I've been really busy with work recently so haven't had the opportunity to take many photos but here's one from a visit to the recently refurbished and extended central library building in Liverpool. The work cost £55M and took about 3 years.

This photo was taken from the entrance of the the new foyer looking upward toward the glass and timber domed multi-storey atrium. I particularly love the layered staircases which cross the gap.


Arts Festival in Waterloo, Liverpool.

For any of you who live in NW England why not pay a visit to the 7th Waterloo Arts Festival which is being held at Old Christ Church, Waterloo Road, Waterloo over the weekends of 20th - 21st July 2013 and 27th - 28th July 2013. Amongst the 400 works of art on display will be 8 of my square format b&w photos for sale as framed limited edition prints. The photos I'm exhibiting will all be from NW England.

Those staircases add a lovely surreal look to this image. Great colour and detail.
