Description - St George's Chapel, Windsor by Eleanor Curtis
"St George's Chapel, Windsor: A Portrait" is a stunning publication about the Queen's Free Chapel of St George at Windsor Castle. It portrays, in traditional black and white film photography, the incredible variety of activities that take place throughout the year, showing both the public and the intimate face of the Chapel. Over the course of eighteen months between 2005 and 2007, writer and photographer Eleanor Curtis was given unprecedented and privileged access to St George's Chapel. Published on the occasion of the 660th anniversary of the Order of the Garter and the College of St George, the result is a body of photographs which reveal both the function and the spirit of the building, as well as the drama of its architecture and the lives and duties of the staff who work there. These include photographs of the Queen and the Royal Family in attendance at religious and ceremonial occasions there, including the special service to celebrate the Queen's 80th birthday.
