FORGOTTEN COAST

A poetic exploration of the Isle of Wight’s South West coastline, where coastal erosion and constant landslips have left abandoned towns and decaying holiday villages. Once home to Alfred Lord Tennyson, his poem 'Nothing Will Die' serves to highlight the never-ending cycle of death and rebirth along the coast.


"Having grown up on the Island, I saw firsthand the devastating effects of coastal erosion and realised that one day there may be nothing left of the island. While the structures have been lost, the memories of these places live on and I wanted to create a snapshot of the coastline as it exists today, before the sea claims another chunk of land. We traveled to the Isle of Wight, shooting along the picturesque Military Road that stretches along the South West of the island. From Blackgang to Freshwater Bay, we documented ruined holiday parks, collapsed roads and long abandoned towns"
