    ‘Another Place’ is the title of a rather original sculpture exhibition by Antony Gormley (London 1950). It consists of 100 cast-iron men ( in fact, casts of the artist’s own body ) placed on a beach at Crosby, which is on the north coast of the estuary of the River Mersey where it flows into the Irish Sea. They all face out to sea and cover a 2 mile / 3.2 Km stretch of the beach. Each sculpture is 6ft 2in / 189 cm tall and weighs 650 kg. At high tide all but the heads of a few of the nearest ones are covered.
    If you are interested you can see his website here.
    If you like these photos please take a look at my other post with the same name in the ‘Black & White’ section.

    Wow, I don't know how I missed this thread, Colin - this is a fantastic exhibition! I really, really like your photographs, too! Superb light and what a surreal feeling even through the photos! This seems like a very cool and interesting exhibition. Man, I have to get out more - too bad I couldn't get out there!

    Thanks for the link to the artist's site, too. Now I'm off to find your photo in the black and white section which I have found here: "Another Place" in B&W.
