. Hidden Durham .

Forming the second phase of the Durham Riverside Renewal project, Milburngate is a £120 million vibrant and unique masterplan set to transform a prime location in the heart of Durham city centre.

Luxury apartments, bars, restaurants, offices and a boutique cinema, plus panoramic views across the River Wear towards the city’s historic landmarks will create a vibrant destination for residents and visitors.

Brief: Prior to any building work taking place, I was commissioned by design agency Founded to capture the unique lifestyle Durham City has to offer.
 

Durham is a magical place to get lost down hidden alleys where amazing views or cafes serving the best coffee in town reward those who step off the main cobbled drag.

So I set myself to task to seek out the ‘Hidden Durham’. But how do you capture one of the world's most photographed cities and UNESCO World Heritage Sites in a way that's not been done before?

I was looking for the abstract, for reflections, for interesting light bouncing off surfaces, for puddles left behind by rowers' oars, caught by the early-morning light. Images that would bring a sense of intimacy and reference Durham’s heritage and character.

Knowing Durham well, I had to reimagine how I could capture the city and it became apparent that the best way to do this was to (re)discover it myself, camera in-hand.
