A fascination for the vast in space and time has led David Stephenson to travel and photograph extensively around the world, with journeys to Europe, the Himalayas, and both the Arctic and Antarctic.

He has photographed a range of subjects: landscapes, skyscapes, cityskypes and the ceilings of European sacred architecture. He uses his photography to explore abstract, intangible themes including the idea of the sublime, environmental concerns and the transcendental power of light.

A meditation on the sublime has sustained David Stephenson’s artistic practice over 30 years, which has evolved through long-term, interrelated projects of inquiry. His photographs of the sublime ceilings of European sacred architecture have been published in two monographs with Princeton Architectural Press: Visions of Heaven: The Dome in European Architecture 2005 and Heavenly Vaults: From Romanesque to Gothic in European Architecture 2009, and showcased worldwide in many exhibitions.
