Following 9th century monks as they flee from invading vikings with the body of St Cuthbert and the Lindisfarne Gospels – and undertake a momentous journey that helps shape England
Paul Alexander Knox is the official photographer for St Cuthbert’s Final Journey. His pictures from the project can be viewed on this website (iphonography) and will be exhibited in Durham as part of the Lindisfarne Gospels Exhibition.
He is a documentary photographer working to examine social and cultural structures both locally and globally. In the North East of England he’s focused on industrial history and the changing social structure impacted by the loss of industry, as seen though changes in social housing and land use.
He has just finished a commission for Side Gallery, creating a series of vignettes telling stories of life within the Bangladeshi community in Sunderland. Other on-going projects include: Shadow Boxing, looking at unlicensed boxing in England, and Americaland which looks at the American landscape, the American dream, and the transient communities displaced by both war and the recent economic downturn.
He has also created a substantial portfolio of international work exploring the communal nature of the developing world focusing on how religion is practiced, trade is created and life takes place on the street.
