The Best Seat in the House
The Best Seat in the House is an ongoing body of work looking into the relationship between the human element and architectural spaces, specifically religious buildings such as cathedrals, abbeys and churches. The way these places were seen as such a powerful structure and as an organisation is staggering. Today there seems to have been a shift from their original religious purpose to a much more diverse range of uses, such as tourism. This body of work was inspired by the late Magnum photographer Peter Marlow, who had photographed every cathedral in England and who utilised a typological approach. The Best Seat in the House not only aims to be a typology, but also a record of these amazing places.
