The photos, as well as the *video, prompted me being asked to talk at King’s College London about ‘incidental crosses’ in art. The first photo is from a weathered manhole cover in Bunhill Fields, a former burial ground in Islington. The first series is taken from a 1970’s abandoned building on the Strand, Westminster, the crosses are revealed next to burning marks left from the ceilings light fittings. The other series is of grime and moss deposits left between stones on the steps of St George’s church, Bloomsbury, (designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor, 1730).
All locations: Central London.
