misc Baltic Flour Mills, Gateshead

This is a glowing photo of the Baltic Flour Mills, showing the building bathed in the wonderful evening light. The building is now the Baltic centre of contemporary art, and was converted from the building that housed the grain silos for Rank Hovis's 1950's quayside mill, opening in its converted form in July 2002.

The Baltic, and in fact the whole of the twin cities of Gateshead and Newcastle (joined by the Millennium Bridge) got a lot of media coverage this week, thanks to a photo shoot and installation by Spencer Tunick on 17th July, featuring the architecture of the cities, and 1700 nudes.
