stairs - Katherine Young

Staircase can be found in incredibly varied forms such as triangular, circular, square, rectangular and oval and are made of myriad of materials from stone and concrete to wood and metal and brick. As much as they are functional, staircases are also decorative and form an integral part of any building. They use visual language of form, shape, lines, colour and texture to create an abstract composition that truly appeals to me.

I believe that the natural design of staircases in general and spiral staircase in particular, makes them very photogenic and pleasing to the eye.

My photographs of staircases come in two series: The Downward Spiral (looking down from the top of the staircase) and Serpentine (looking up).
