No Photography Policy

Waltham Place has a No Photography policy. As a private family home, we ask visitors to experience Waltham in the moment and not through the lens of a camera. Since 2010, Artur Urbanski, the Polish photographer, has visited places of natural beauty around the world, photographing people as they take their holiday snaps. “Whenever I am somewhere beautiful in the world, I see the same thing. People take out their cameras or mobile phones and try to capture a moment, then, more often than not, they move on straight away. We are losing the experience of being there because we are focused on the technical process of trying to capture it, for the sake of using it in the future, to post on social media, to show our friends, or just to say we’ve been there.” Artur Urbanski.
