ISOLATED COASTLINE

I set out to walk the South Coast of England, from Margate on the East to St Ives on the West, a total length of approximately 350 miles. Coming from the Midlands, the part of England furthest from the sea, I was curious to explore where the built up urban expanse gives way to the openness of the sea's edge. I had once read how our fascination with staring out to sea is linked to death, due to being confronted with the vast emptiness that exists at the edge of land. With this in mind, and being influenced by the dramatic English weather, I tried to capture simple moments that seemed to bear some kind of greater, existential relevance.
