Mary Rose Museum. Portsmouth.

Photographs of the museum currently being built around the Mary Rose.  
Built between 1509 and 1511, she was one of the first ships able to fire a broadside, and was a firm favourite of King Henry VIII.
After a long and successful career, she sank accidentally during an engagement with the French fleet in 1545.  Her rediscovery and raising were seminal events in the history of nautical archaeology.
The new museum will house the remains of the raised ship and many of the artifacts that were also found.

DeBeers Exhibition. Westfield Shopping Centre. London.

 DeBeers opened an exhibition, showcasing their jewellery at Westfield Shopping Centre in White City, that I was lucky enough to photograph.  The exhibition featured their Enchanted Lotus Collection and their brand new Bridal App.
