Award winning photo taken in Lynn

A photo taken in King’s Lynn has won first prize in a competition held at the Swaffham Camera Club.

The stunning abstract called “Waterfront Window” was taken by club member Jack Mitchell, and is a view through one of the optical installations created for the town by French designer Thibault Zambeaux.

The “Archilense” is located near the Custom House.

Archilense is part of the “Art, Cities and Landscape” project set up by the Maison de la Culture of Amiens in partnership with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.

Archilense is a series of three optical installations, equal in size, each one of them opens a window onto the Kings Lynn landscape, making use of the properties of Fresnel lenses in order to better transform the view on the approach of the passer-by.

These optical instruments, inlaid into panels, are often used in lighthouses and turn the surrounding landscape into a distorted prism.

The other two installations can be viewed in each of the market squares in the town.
