Photolog: British Museum

Royal Lion Hunt bas-relief details, Mesopotamian Collection

‘Photolog’ is a new series of posts with predominant focus on photographs rather than text. I’ll be posting a selection of images from my photographic endeavors that are mostly around travel, nature, landscape and urban photography.

Starting with one of the world’s greatest museums of human history and culture the British Museum London. Its permanent collection, numbering some eight million works, is amongst the finest, most comprehensive, and largest in existence and originates from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.

The British Museum was established in 1753, largely based on the collections of the physician and scientist Sir Hans Sloane. The museum first opened to the public on 15 January 1759 in Montagu House in Bloomsbury, on the site of the current museum building. Its expansion over the following two and a half centuries was largely a result of an expanding British colonial footprint and has resulted in the creation of several branch institutions, the first being the British Museum (Natural History) in South Kensington in 1887… more

Traveller, photographer and cinematographer Marty Mellway compiled this truly inspiring piece of work with clips from his travel videos. The end result is a fascinating fusion of music, poetry and photography – a very intoxicating mix for creative and curious minds!

I use photography and cinema to capture what I see and feel. I live a lifestyle of almost perpetual motion only stopping for short breaks before heading back on the road. I travel as much and as often as I can. My films are a tribute to this incredible world and everything it shares with us. I’m so inspired by the idea of cinema and photography, the very act of capturing light energy and making it mean something is just so incredible and profound – Marty Mellway

… and yes, below is the beautiful poem in this video by Lord Byron (George Gordon) 1788–1824 – narrated by Tom O’bedlam.

SO WE’LL GO NO MORE A ROVING

So, we’ll go no more a roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we’ll go no more a roving
By the light of the moon.
