Can You See the Sea?
This project is an exploration of benches found along the coastline of East Anglia. Capturing both from the bench and their view, these subjects allude to a time when the coast was a more popular tourist destination. As peoples incomes and horizons broadened, so these archetypal English seaside resorts changed. The benches, however and their prescribed proximity remained, the view has become something perhaps more mundane inviting sitters to partake in a view of the ordinary. Bearing no relation to their original context, they have become both humorous and melancholy as they remind us of something, an age, now lost.
