Soaring majestically over the Avon Gorge the Clifton Suspension bridge is one of Bristol’s main sights. Built by good ole Isambard Kingdom Brunel (what a name!) the bridge is at once both powerful and strong, and light feeling.
A great place to take photographs by day with the beautiful views over the gorge and the city, and equally as spectacular by night when it is all illuminated by tiny lights. As a pedestrian you can walk across on either side to take advantage of the views up towards the estuary or out over the cumberland basin. It’s also great for getting up close and personal with all the huge industrial iron work that’s holding the bridge up.
Unfortunately for me the batteries in my Holga escaped and messed up a few of my shots… and I managed to get my panorama the wrong way around… but I think it’s got great potential! And even better is the close proximity of The White Lion, a pub with an amazing terrace where you can enjoy the view of the bridge with a nice cold drink! Hooray!
British documentary photographer and color photography pioneer Martin Parr opened his own foundation in Bristol earlier this year, and with this short interview, he recollects his life and works with photography throughout the years.
