The most difficult thing about moving to a new area is finding that, without even realising it, you had built up all of your habits and activities based on your previous location. This is especially true of my photography. When I moved house in June, I found that all of the places I loved to photograph, once within walking distance, were now too far away to visit, especially now that I’ve started full-time work.
Now that I’ve settled in, I’ve begun exploring my new location. On Lawrence Street, in the city of York, is the Church of St Lawrence, the second-largest religious building in the city. This beautiful structure has been my subject over the past few days, and I am very happy with the results so far.
I love using photography to get to know a place, and that is my intention with this church. Expect many studies in the future.
