A Visual Tour of the British Seaside
- From Blackpool to Brighton and Barry Island to Brightlingsea, these richly-detailed photographs capture the candyfloss colors and faded nostalgia of a seaside culture that is peculiarly (yet wonderfully) British
From Blackpool to Brighton, the pastel colors, faded arcades and worn-out carpets of British coastal towns evoke a particular nostalgia. With the changing tides of the British political landscape these traditional resorts appear fragile and some are falling into disrepair. Nevertheless, some are thriving and all retain a special charm and retro appeal. Shooting for more than a decade since 2009, Rob Ball has documented over thirty-five coastal towns. His images serve as a record of a unique culture that is at risk of disappearing forever.
