Fiona Crisp: Baltic Centre

I've always liked underground spaces; Rome's Christian Catacombs, the Paris Catacombs, caves, crypts and my favourite - the stairs down into complete darkness at Mycenae. Crisp photographs these spaces and captures their absolute stillness. The big prints allow the viewer to feel as though they're in the place and with the mine and catacombs, its the idea that the architecture is formed by removing something, not building.
