The British Seaside - Richard Hancock LRPS

The British Seaside can be one of the most enchanting and magical places on the planet. A mixture of faded Victorian glory with kiss-me-quick caravan chic. It is classless in the way it attracts people from all walks of life to its Grand Hotels or humble guest houses. However, for me the enchantment of the British Seaside has always been when the holidaymakers have gone with the summer sun and the closed signs go up. These places then take on an almost ghostly quality where the echoes of yesteryear are reflected in the fading pastel colours.


In these series of galleries, I have attempted to capture the spirit and atmosphere of the British Seaside. The photographs have been processed to create a slightly aged and faded colour look as we find looking through photo albums of past childhood holidays with our parents.
