The Seaside Time Forgot. Documentary Photography of British Coastal Towns
Photography can be highly subjective depending upon which way you point the camera. We normally photograph locations to show the unspoilt, idyllic, clean and tidy, happy, smiley scene.
However, in this personal project, I am showing the opposite and equally subjective viewpoint of our British Seaside. One which is sometimes sad, sometimes humerous and often ironic and poignant. But always very “British”. Many of our coastal towns are now a shadow of their former selves. The decline of the seaside town has ebbed and flowed ever since the advent of the Mediterranean package holiday several decades ago and although many resorts have fought back and reinvented themselves, some have gone even further backwards.
