If you visit Hays Galleria on the south bank of the Thames (just below London Bridge Station), you’ll discover the magnificent steampunk sculpture The Navigators. This is a massive, moving bronze sculpture that is part fish and part ship. Created in 1987 by sculptor David Kemp, it is meant to commemorate the Galleria’s shipping heritage. Hays Galleria is currently a shopping centre with boutique stores and restaurants but was once a large warehouse situated on Hays Wharf (from which it takes its name).
The Navigators is notoriously difficult to photograph because, in all honesty, it is far too big for the space it is in. I was glad to finally get a reasonable shot of it.
