Circumference is the title I have given to a linked project covering my piecemeal journey around the entire coast of Great Britain.
Initially, this was devised to ease the pressure to include favourite but not necessarily particularly apt images in the Final Major Project. Thus, photographs I had taken and really wanted to include but which didn’t quite fit (following advice from multiple tutors at the face to face that I should seriously edit the number of images I had) ended up in the Circumference file.
Although the sequencing is straightforward (clockwise from New Brighton to New Brighton), the overall discourse has not quite yet made itself clear. At the moment, it is just a portrait of coastal lives, but there is a fair bit of variation in style and content – the two main ‘factions’ here being, for want of better descriptions, the humorous/off-beat…
And the deadpan:
It is possible that this could diverge further into two (or more) separate projects, and that it could be an ongoing project rather than just using images taken over the course of the MA. There is also the exhibition of Seaside photography still to visit at the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate, which may help shape my thinking.
