Huge Westward Ho! photo mural installation
Back in June I was approached by the Engineering Manager of North Devon District Hospital in Barnstaple, to see whether I was interested in having one of my photos used as a photo mural on the new A&E reception area – I was delighted to donate a photo for such a worthy project.
Finding a suitable photo for the space was much trickier than I had initially thought – it is a long, narrow space and the photo needed to represent the North Devon area. So I had to choose a photo that had something iconic, but could also be cropped to the necessary dimensions. The Engineering Manager, Architect, printers and I had a play around with a few images before settling on one featuring the wooden groynes and pebbles on Westward Ho! beach, at sunset.
This afternoon I had the opportunity to go up and see the photo mural for myself, now that it has been installed into the A&E waiting area. As A&E was in full operation, unfortunately it was too busy to get a photo myself, but here’s a photo the Engineering Manager took shortly after it was installed. 😍
This is something I’m really proud of – it’s quite incredible and overwhelming to see your work on this scale.
Hopefully it will brighten the wait for many patients during their time at A&E, for years to come.
