Photographs of the mercurial River Thames made during a 10 day walk in August 2012 backpacking and wild camping where possible along 170 miles of the Thames Path from the source near Kemble in Gloucestershire to the City of London, I chose to end my journey on the steps of St Pauls.

Sweet Thames, run softly till I end my song,
Sweet Thames, run softly, for I speak not loud or long

Ashampstead Nativity Greetings Card available at St Clement’s Church. Photo: Quintin Lake

St Clement’s Church, Ashampstead, Berkshire contains fine medieval wall paintings dating from c1250. These four Holy Infancy scenes with their decorative heading are in the nave. They illustrate The Annunciation, The Visitation, The Nativity and the Appearance of the Angels to the Shepherds. The paintings were defaced and covered over at the time of the Reformation. they were rediscovered in 1886 and are now being conserved.

The wall-paintings were specially photographed to reveal the maximum amount of detail in the originals. More images from the photoshoot

Also available at St Clement’s Church are a set of 6 different postcards of the Nativity and a folded card. Proceeds from the sale of the cards go to the maintenance of the church. Map showing location of the Church

These photographs were made during an assignment to produce compositions suitable for use as greetings cards which will be sold to fund building work on the church. The wall-paintings were lit with two strobes bounced off reflecting umbrellas to give an even an even neutral light on the subject. Various enhancements were made in post production to reveal the maximum amount of detail including increasing contrast and saturation of the originals.

The Courtauld institute has written “These 13th Century paintings are undoubtedly amongst the most important of their date in England, not only because of the amount of painting that survives but because of their high quality”. The paintings were discovered in 1895 having been plastered over during the reformation. Restoration work was undertaken in 1960.
