Photospheres at Southwark Cathedral Refectory

Hilary Smith

Southwark Cathedral is now hosting an exhibition by Edward Hill featuring photospheres of various cathedrals around Britain.


Displayed in the Refectory are eight photospheres of various cathedrals taken by Edward Hill, who explains: "Photospheres are circular photomontages which contain everything visible above, below and around you at a given point – a holistic vision of the world which places you at the centre."

Southwark Cathedral has three of these display photos showing various shots inside and outside the cathedral itself.

Colourful and captivating, these photos draw the viewer's eye into a topsy-turvy world featuring the houses of God. Ranging from the exterior gardens of Wells Cathedral to the dome crossing of St. Paul's, Hill's photos are an intense and unique viewpoint of some classically beautiful cathedrals. A collage of interior and exteriors shots, these Photospheres creatively drawn aspects of each cathedral together in an enchanting and engaging way. Hill has created a delightful exhibition of photographs that flows down a new and unusual avenue of art.

Varying both in sizes and prices, Edward Hill's Photosphere prints are currently being sold in Southwark Cathedral's shop. More than sixty other cathedrals are on display for viewing and purchasing in the cathedral side aisle.
• Until Tuesday 9 May in the Refectory, Southwark Cathedral.
