Day 12:01 am
Now this was something of a find.
It is a text and photographic exploration of the Essex shoreline by Jason Orton and Ken Worpole…
The photographs seem to be an almost unintended capturing or exploration of some semi-hidden other side of the land, of the forgotten or overlooked history, lives and tales of coastline edgelands.
There is a quiet grace and beauty to them, a gentle melancholia that I can’t quite always put my finger on…
“The authors have uncovered in words and images a haunted littoral of piers and power plants, mudflats and louring skies… Essex has never looked so mystical.” (Found here).
