45+ Most Beautiful Spiral and Helical Staircase Photographs

Staircases by their very nature lead us somewhere, so photographers use this to their advantage – They choose a viewpoint that hides the far end of the staircase, enticing the viewer to wonder where it could lead. This ‘mental exploration’ adds mystery and engages the viewer.

In this article, we have showcased some of the most beautiful examples of Spiral & Helical staircases. A much needed appreciation goes for the photographers who captured the scene with the right emotion and at the right moment. Although these stairs are spiral & Helical by appearance, but they aren’t actually spiral in a literal sense. The term “spiral” is used incorrectly for a staircase from a mathematical viewpoint, as a mathematical spiral lies in a single plane and moves towards or away from a central point. A spiral staircase by the mathematical definition therefore would be of little use as it would afford no change in elevation. The correct mathematical term for these staircases would be “helical”.
