I am still waiting for two rolls of film from the four that I exposed in Thomas More’s cell (and its connecting areas), but I thought I would post four of the images from the two films that I do have.
I actually found it very difficult to photograph the cell of Thomas More and in many ways thought the connecting areas more visually interesting. To find these access rooms more interesting than a historically important site such as the cell, may seem a terrible thing, but for me the connecting corridors spoke more of the how the Tower represents its history, as well as how the needs of the historic site change the way these spaces are accessed and read. Due to the fragility of the cell, and in an attempt to stave off further deterioration, the rooms are no longer open to the general public. But not so long ago the attached rooms were used to tell the story of Thomas More to visitors.
