A Portrait of York
A Portrait of York
  • Description

With its almost-intact medieval walls still surrounding its ancient heart, York is a city on a human scale. Here, straddling the River Ouse, lay a great centre for Roman and Viking Britain, which in Victorian times became the hub for the development of railways.

Today, the modern city of York extends well beyond the ancient heart, and dramatic new buildings have played a part in the quality of the landscape and street scene. In creating this exciting new portrait of York, Ian Carstairs has not focused solely on the historic aspects, but also on the thriving, varied and modern city, with its remarkable surrounding countryside too.

His photographs reflect not just the famous attractions, but the shapes of buildings, their roofscapes, the play of light and the not-so-glamorous structures which are nevertheless distinctive of their eras.

Ian Carstairs lives close to York and has known the city for most of his life. Formerly employed by the North York Moors National Park authority, he later became the deputy chairman of the authority and now works as a countryside consultant where he uses his outstanding photography as a conservation tool.
