The Durham Series

Sanctuary Knocker

The old sanctuary handle on the door of Durham Cat2015-04-28 13.50.29hedral (OK it’s a repro one there now…) is often photographed, usually head-on (inset).  I’m working up a “Durham Series” of photos while I’m here and wanted to include it, but with an angle… so that’s what I did (and some “posterizing” afterwards turn the soft gradients into more “steppy” changes and bring out the grimace. Black and white seemed best as well so as not to distract from the amazing strength of the design. Hope you like it.
