Back to the Sea
Seaside towns and the beach have long been the main “theatre” for photographers to study the spirit and mentality of the English. Back to the Sea stays in this tradition but shifts the focus onto the functional and mundane structures that underpin seaside life: coastal erosion defences. These structures – by echoing the form and function of defensive military fortifications – may project insular notions of national identity and evoke a sense of threat to England’s landscape.
