In November I was in Gateshead (and in Newcastle for the first time, I think, after 30-odd years living in this country) and made a detour with the Fuji TV crew to see Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North.
It stood in the middle of nowhere, a gigantic figure, which looked deceptively small from the side. From the front though it was so wide that it could topple over sideways any moment, not particularly lovely to look at but certainly impressive. You can experiment with different angles to shoot it from. Would like to visit Crosby Beach next.
