the borough

This project is maturing out of my final degree project. I am exploring the architecture of coastal towns.

The vernacular of the built landscape changes within a few streets of the promenade, owing to the redevelopment of these towns that turned them into 'resorts' in Victorian times, and their gradual decline back to becoming a 'normal town' in the last decades of the 20th century.

The opening shot in the gallery was selected as a finalist in the Royal Photographic Society's International Print Exhibition #158 and is touring the UK during 2015 & 2016

This project is mostly being shot on large format film, although there are planning shots included in this edit that have been captured using digital or medium format film.
