In June 2005, the sculptor Antony Gormley installed the first of 100 eerie cast-iron figures on Crosby beach in Merseyside, each modelled on his own body. The late Guardian photographer Don McPhee was there to capture the moment. Dotted over a nearly two-mile stretch of shoreline, the figures become by turns submerged and revealed by the ebb and flow of the tides. Initially the sculptures were erected at Crosby on a temporary basis after being shown in Norway, Germany and Belgium. But in 2007 the local council agreed for them to be on permanent display, where they remain today: rusting, barnacle-covered, but still staring out at the horizon.
