All Hallows by the Tower: The Great City Photography Project

I'm pleased to have had some of my Windows on the World photographs included in The Great City Photography Project at All Hallows by the Tower.

In commemoration of the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, All Hallows by the Tower has developed an exciting public photography project for everyone who works or lives in the City of London.

The City of London looks very different now from even, say, 40 years ago. The scale of new building calls to mind another time of rapid rebuilding: after the Great Fire of 1666, when a 'more beautiful City' of brick and stone replaced the medieval wooden houses that were destroyed.

To commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire in September 2016, those who live or work in the 'square mile' of the City were invited to contribute to a public photography project, art installation and exhibition. 

The Great City Photography Project is on display at All Hallows by the Tower from 1 September - 30 October, featuring a new installation by the artist Victoria Burgher, as well as a selection of the many wonderful photographs taken by members of the City of London community. Admission free, open daily during normal church opening hours.
