Head over to photomonitor.co.uk to read Oliver Atwell’s (Photoart 2008 Graduate) absorbing review of Pierdom by Simon Roberts.
The bracing winds and pebble beaches of our coastal regions have long been a destination of choice for the British vacationer on a budget. But of course these wind-streaked landscapes have also managed to enchant many a writer, filmmaker and photographer. Seaside resorts and bays have served as atmospheric backdrops to the kind of coastal noir found within the moving monochrome frames of John Boulton’s adaptation of Brighton Rock, and photographically we can look to the colour-saturated human wildlife photographs from Martin Parr’s project Life’s a Beach. More recently we’ve seen fine art photographer Michael Marten cast his eye over the shifting topography of Britain’s coastal regions in his excellent book Sea Change. – Oliver Atwell
