Homerton College Library photos are part of the Illuminating Cambridge Libraries series. Fine art photography of the Homerton Library, Homerton College Cambridge presented as part of the large Illuminating Cambridge Libraries series. Built in 1997, the library at Homerton College is set in a wonderfully contrasting space. It seems flooded with daylight whilst sporting sizeable black bookshelves. It’s tall windowed wall somehow appears cozy. And the staircase that dominates the north end yet looks so lightweight that it seems more than just the book lift could move.

This photographic collection of the Homerton Library was photographed in 2018 and contains 58 images, a small selection of which are shown below and available as giclee prints in many sizes.

Archival Pigment Prints

Archival pigment prints are museum quality pieces made by the artist in her own studio. Paper is smooth matte, archival, 100% cotton, 308gsm Hahnemuhle FineArt Photo Rag fine art paper. Ink is high end pigment-based and long-lasting (the company claims 400 years!). Note prints will not show the watermark.

Due to the wide variety of screens, the colours on your screen may differ slightly from colours in the print. If you’re concerned, please get in touch first and I can send you a colour sample in advance.

A3 and A2 prints are also artist-printed and signed. Each of these prints is a numbered limited edition, out of 150 for each size. Note two Artist’s Editions of each size are retained by the photographer.
