The Paul Mellon Centre for studies in British art is an educational charity committed to promoting original, world-class research in to the history of British art and architecture of all periods. The centre collaborates closely with The Yale Centre for British Art and is part of Yale University.
The centre contacted me recently to photograph a couple of paintings at Trewithen House near Truro, Cornwall. I was very happy when they contacted me again shortly after that shoot to go back and photograph four of the rooms where art is displayed.
Trewithen House is a beautiful example of 18th century architecture. Bought in 1770 by Phillip Hawkins the house has remained in the same family for over 300 years.
I have been lucky enough to spend quite a lot of time over the last few years photographing the fabulous Carbis Bay Hotel so I was delighted to be commissioned by Spiral to do some interior photography of a couple of their staircases in the gorgeous new beach villas.
John Bray Cornish Holidays offices in Rock have had a facelift & I was delighted to be asked to photograph them.
