Another Place on Crosby Beech

Another Place, an idea to test time and tide by Antony Gormley. Known to the locals of Sefton as the‘ Iron Men’ of Crosby beech, the statues are made from 17 varied body-casts of artist Antony Gormley. Each sculpture is standing in a similar pose with different tension or relaxation in their postures. Sited over 3 kilometres along the seafront and looking out over the horizon one kilometre into Liverpool estuary. All one hundred 650 kilograms cast iron figures, are a copy of the artists body just wrapped in cling film.

Engagement photography “Another Place” Crosby beech Merseyside

Ruth  – contacted me about the couples wedding this summer, and I was so pleased to be asked to be there wedding photographer.  The couple plan to marry at Sale registry office this summer. I thought about a location for there engagement photography. Not far from Manchester (just down the M62 north of Liverpool) are the cast iron statues on Crosby beech by Antony Gormley. This artist is also known for the Angel of the North in the north east of the country.

“Another Place” engagement shoot

The 100 statues on the beech are called Another place. Our meeting point for the engagement shoot was Mariners Road L23 6SX. The free carpark is very close to the Iron men of Sefton. I offer a engagement shoot as part of my wedding photography package –  they last about a hour normally – local to myself.  I will take some natural  informal photographs for you, and you can see how I like to work.
