"Another Place"

by Adrian Morris August. 03, 2020 306 views

“Another Place” is an amazing piece of sculpture which stands on Crosby beach, near Liverpool. It was made by Antony Gormley who is more famous for his “Angel of The North” which stands on a hill near Newcastle upon Tyne. “Another Place” consists of 100 cast iron figures which look out towards the sea. The work is very evocative, but it is impossible to record 100 widely spaced statues in one photograph, so I have tried to capture the mood of the sculpture while including only a few. The presence of many visitors on the beach enhance the bizarre effect of this incredible creation.

Perhaps he was thinking of using one of those bicycles to go to "another place".

This picture shows the Liverpool docks in the background.

It's not just the art work which is interesting. Myriads of lugworm casts lie on the beach.

On this day there were also many jellyfish.

Great series of images.
I was hoping to get there this year but with the travel restrictions I have had to put it off, Oh well next year perhaps.

When I saw #1 I thought this are real humans. It's a beautiful photo. Love the whole series. #8 made me laugh. I'm born and grown up in north Germany, not far away from the North sea. When I was a child, at low tide we often made walks across the mud flats. Once my mother asked me, why I always walk and jump so strange, when we are walking in the mud flats, I answered, I don't want to step on the poor worms. Hehe, I really thought, the myriads are the lugworms itself. smile

Thank you for kind comments. When I was a child I also lived very near to the North Sea - the north-east coast of England though. The nearest beach was, and still is, usually deserted. There were also many lugworms there. I remember men from our village used to dig out the worms and sell them to fishermen as bait. Like you, I also thought the casts were the actual worms.
