This is the famous Tulip Staircase at The Queen's House in Greenwich, London. It was the first centrally unsupported helical staircase constructed in England (circa 1616). It was installed by the architect Inigo Jones who was first significant British architect of the early modern period. The Queen's House was the first consciously classical building to have been constructed in Britain.
I wanted to capture the pure abstract shape of the staircase and did this by lying on the floor with my head and camera directly beneath the central skylight. The shape mimics the golden ratio in geometry which is suggested to be the most pleasing shape and form in existence.
