The English Cathedral Exhibition (from the Peter Marlow Foundation)

Acclaimed photographer Peter Marlow (1952-2016) was commissioned in 2008 by Royal Mail to photograph six Anglican Cathedrals to mark the 300th anniversary of St Paul’s Cathedral for a collection of commemorative stamps. So enticed by the beauty of the Cathedrals, he decided to shoot all 42. He chose to photograph each one in the same way, looking down the nave, lit only with natural light at dawn. The result distils the spirit of the English Cathedral, highlighting not only their often massive scale and timeless architecture, but also their intimate beauty.

Thank you to the Peter Marlow Foundation for the installation of this awe-inspiring exhibition.

The exhibition is open from 9am to 4.30pm every day from the 2nd August to 21st August, other than from 2-3.30pm on Saturday 20 August.
