Through my love of landscape and architectural photography, I developed an interest in the imposing gates and screens of the 18th and 19th Century that can be found on the entrances to mansions built on landscaped parkland in the estates of the aristocracy and industrial magnates. I am fascinated by the skill and beauty of craftsmanship of these grand entrances. Wealthy philanthropists often donated gates to churches and parks. Robert and John Davies of North West Wales, who flourished between 1702 and 1755, were amongst the foremost craftsmen of their time and my body of work explores some of their magnificent gates and screens - allowing others to appreciate the beauty and talent of their ironworking within a landscape setting.
