I am extremely saddened to learn that Simon Marsden passed away at the end of January……
His haunting black and white photography has always been a favorite of mine….
No one captured the mood of eeriness like Simon’s eye through the lens….
His books contain image after image of the most spectral sites in the UK and the world…..
We liked the same genre……graveyards, ruins…..although I can only hope to hold a candle even faintly near to the level of art he left as legacy during his lifetime.
Honored with the title of Baronet of Grimsby, he made his home in an old rectory.
His pictures opened up a world of supernatural places on earth to me….his artistry will be missed……
