Stairways have always intrigued me, not just for their design, but for what they symbolize. The stair is a passageway into the building, inviting you into the unseen corridors and chambers above. It is the building’s spine and is frequently it’s most graceful element. Pure architectural form, inherently beautiful even without the embellishment of furnishings or artwork. – Richard Sexton
The limited edition of 100 (plus five artist proofs) is an archival pigment print, featuring a 8×8” image on 12×10” Epson Hot Press Natural paper.
