On Foreign Shores
My seaside project is an exploration of strange yet inspiring conditions of today's seaside town's culture in the UK. Since my first visit to the UK in 2013 I was captivated by a quality that most seaside towns here have, that of a past almost uncomfortably mingling with the present. This was at the back of my mind for few years, until the summer of my final year of MA studies here in 2017, when I worked on this project for 3 months, travelling repeatedly to places on the UK coastline. The result of my project is a collection of memories and moments captured on a film. During the shooting of my project I think I got closer to understanding the core of today's seaside culture and I believe that this is reflected in my photographs. Many of them have a special and personal meaning for me, but I hope that each viewer can bring their own way of understanding and interpretation to the project.
