What is England?
I’m currently involved in Stuart Pilkington’s curated project “What is England“. Throughout 2010, 50 photographers (one for each county of England) will respond to 5 different assignments. The first assignment, “Person” – is online now. I am covering Essex – I have family there and it’s where my mother grew up, but its a county that I don’t know very well and am keen to learn more about.
I spent a day shooting in Grays and visiting relatives earlier this month – The first image is of a lad called Martin who was riding his trials bike on the roof of the infamous Lakeside shopping centre in Chafford. I’ve also attached a couple of other photographs from the day.
