Staircases of London is a collection of London’s most impressive
spiral stairs. This selection of images is part of a larger, ongoing
project that combines my appreciation for design with my interest
in exploring London. The project provides architectural and
cultural insights spanning five hundred years from the 17-21
centuries. For example, the Tulip Stairs, found in the Queen’s
House in Greenwich, is notable architecturally because it was the
first self supporting helical staircase in Britain. It is an elegant
display of light and curves, and demonstrates the wrought-iron
craftsmanship which was popular at the time. This series includes
the Tulip Stairs as well as stairs from: the Wellcome Collection;
Heal’s department store; citizenM hotel; and the Newport Street

I hope you enjoy my photos.
