What value do we place on natural light? Andy Billman’s new photographic series documents the bricked-up windows of London, examining the role that light and air play for our wellbeing in the spaces we inhabit.


Supported by Olympus UK and Image Print Centre
Part of London Festival of Architecture. 

Originally photographing overlooked bricked-up windows in appreciation of their visual form, he discovered many of these windows were blocked up to avoid the Georgian-era Window Tax, which stipulated that the more windows one had, the more one had to pay.

The blocked up windows – remnants of a time when a price was actually placed on light and air – have particular resonance with life during lockdown. Over the past year, windows have been a priceless source of wellbeing; offering sunlight, fresh air and a means to interact with the outside world. Beyond reflecting on these visual structures created in the past, the work inspires a greater consideration for light sources we create in our spaces today.
