During the 1960s the British holiday camp experienced a hey day. However, this British institution has suffered a decline as holidaymakers enjoy the increasingly affordable foreign beach holiday. All the visible affects of the camp are a façade, an artifice, a fabricated otherworld to take you away from your own humdrum existence. In the presence of the holidaymaker the holiday rep becomes animated, the lights sparkle and the music pulses like a heartbeat; as the season draws to a close the camp falls to silence. LIDO is a visual documentation of the Solway Holiday Village (Lido) situated in Silloth, Cumbria. This series is a photographic account that captures the monotony and bizarre artifice of the holiday village.
