EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by John Critchley showcases the magnificent Ypres Tower, located in Rye, East Sussex. Steeped in history and dating back to 1250, this formidable structure served as a vital defense for centuries. Originally constructed as a fortification, it later underwent conversion into a residential house in 1430. The Ypres Tower stands tall with an air of medieval grandeur, its solid stone walls echoing tales of battles fought and won. Its imposing presence is accentuated by the ancient cannon that rests at its side – a silent witness to countless historical events. Once used as both a gaol and mortuary, this tower holds secrets within its sturdy walls. It has witnessed moments of triumph and tragedy alike throughout the ages. As you gaze upon this image, you can almost feel the weight of history pressing down upon you. John Critchley's masterful photography captures every intricate detail of this architectural marvel. The play between light and shadow highlights the tower's rugged beauty while emphasizing its strength as a defensive stronghold. This print transports us back in time to an era when fortresses like these were essential for survival. It serves as a poignant reminder of our rich heritage and invites us to delve deeper into the stories hidden within these ancient stones.
