Photographer's Note

ANOTHER PLACE is a piece of modern sculpture by Sir Antony Gormley located at Crosby Beach in Merseyside.

The work consists of cast iron figures which face out to sea, spread over a 2-mile (3.2 km) stretch of beach between Waterloo and Blundellsands. Each figure is a cast replicas of Gormley's own body. As the tides ebb and flow, the figures are revealed and submerged by the sea.

Originally it was planned as a temporary exhibit, but the artist found the location perfect and in March 2007, permission was granted for Another Place to remain at Crosby Beach permanently and I've been wanting to visit it ever since. I finally made it now.

THIS PICTURE shows one of the statues which is knee deep in the beach. In the far distance, if you look closely, a second figure is visible.
