Perspectives

 

Alan has travelled widely and his lifelong interest in art and architecture has manifested itself through the many hundreds of photographs he has taken of buildings, art installations, landscapes and details that he has come across.  Curiosity has led to many interesting places that may reveal a simple inspection chamber cover or an ornate church.  Each building or element influences the space and environment in which they are found.  The photographs are memories of experience, they influence the way we think and our very being.  This is a small selection of photographs and the copyright held by Alan Riley; they are placed here for your enjoyment.  For further publication and other images of each subject, please get in touch via the contacts page.  Not all the subjects are pinnacles of art or architecture but it does not make them uninteresting or unworthy of investigation.
