EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the mesmerizing beauty of the Olisa Library spiral staircase, located within the prestigious Fitzwilliam College at the University of Cambridge. Standing tall and proud, this 21st-century architectural marvel is a testament to modern design and innovation. As we gaze upon this image, our eyes are immediately drawn upwards through the well of the main spiral staircase. The intricate details and impeccable craftsmanship become apparent as each step gracefully winds its way towards an unseen destination above. The play of light and shadow adds depth to this already enchanting scene, creating a sense of mystery and intrigue. The spiral staircase itself seems almost ethereal, resembling a vortex that transports us into another dimension. Its sleek lines and contemporary aesthetic perfectly complement the library's surroundings while adding a touch of elegance to its interior space. James O Davies has skillfully captured not only the physical structure but also the essence of this remarkable piece of architecture. Through his lens, we are transported into a world where artistry meets functionality, where tradition merges seamlessly with modernity. This photograph serves as a reminder that libraries are not just repositories for knowledge; they can also be works of art in their own right. It invites us to appreciate both form and function while igniting our imagination about what lies beyond those spiraling steps.
