Daylight poured in through huge skylights in the original photograph, which was shot by either Notman's son or one of his associates. Now the building houses offices, the skylights are blocked, and on an average day this interior looks cold and deserted. To remedy this I decided to get permission to shoot during a special event. A bit of coldness remains in the new photograph, but I like the effect - the long exposure time gives a ghostly effect to these wedding-goers movements.
