Publisher's Description

Godrevy light flashes across St Ives Bay in Cornwall, England, warning ships of a treacherous submerged reef. Built in 1859, it has figured in paintings by several generations of the St Ives school of artists. It was an inspiration to the young Virginia Woolf, who visited it during childhood holidays and later used her memories in her novel, To the Lighthouse. Michael Marten’s photographs aim to place the lighthouse in the context of its landscape and seascape, its geology and weathers. He is interested in multiple approaches to a subject, as opposed to the idea that one particular moment and viewpoint can adequately portray a place or a scene. The book is based around a series of triptychs, which consist of separate photographs taken one after the other. The purpose is to get away from a »standard« panoramic landscape and surprise the viewer into
looking more carefully.
