Here some of my images focussing on doors and gates taken in recent years. I’ve long had a fascination with them, especially their visual, textural and physical qualities. I think this is because of their significance in terms of marking the threshold between public and private space, or between inside and the outside.
Door – a usually hinged or sliding panel that fits into an entrance to a room or building and which can be opened to allow people in or out or closed for privacy, protection against the weather etc
Gate – the usually hinged frame or door that that closes an opening in a wall or fence.
