Artist's description:

This C-type print (limited to 50 signed and numbered copies worldwide) is part of an exhibited series called BPM - A journey through the house...

During the 18th century, MP John Cator acquired land in Beckenham and finished building his house (the mansion) by 1762.
The mansion remained with the Cator family until the 20th century, although inhabited by tenants for most of the 19th century – including a boys school and sanitorium in the early 20th century – before being bought by London County Council in 1927. When the golf course (established in 1907) became in 1929 the first municipally owned course in England (and also reputedly the busiest). The mansion was retained as a clubhouse. During World War II, the park became a prisoner of war camp and defensive measures including anti-aircraft battery and barrage balloons were installed.
The beauty of the building, hidden away from the public for a number of years, will be enjoyed by the public from 2016 over the following 22 months. During this period of time it will become a vibrant and creative place, catering for the needs of the local community. A range of creative classes, events and other activities will take place at the mansion and bring the building back to life.

At the beginning of the year, I got a most amazing opportunity - to photograph the house from basement to attic, whilst it was being refurbished. Amongst the innumerable images I shot, I selected a final eighteen, thus creating a series of incredibly atmospheric photographs, taking the viewer on a journey through this historically charged and spectacular space.
In September 2017, a month long exhibition of the images ensued at the house itself - a visual homage to this iconic architectural beauty overlooking Beckenham Place Park.

It is with great happiness that I'm now making them available for sale on Artfinder.
