The Hexapylon, Syracuse, Sicily, Italy, 1846.

Print from a paper negative by George Wilson Bridges (1788-1868). The Hexapylon, Syracuse, Sicily, Italy, 1846. Print from a paper negative by George Wilson Bridges (1788-1868). The Hexapylon is part of the ruined defences of the ancient walled city of Syracuse. Bridges wanted to evoke the moment when Marcellus broke into the besieged city during the war between Rome and Carthage (213-211 BC). Bridges took up photography after meeting W H F Talbot (1800-1877) in 1845. He travelled the world between 1846 and 1852 moving from Sicily to Greece, Egypt and the Holy Land. He returned from his travels with around 1700 photographs.
