Welcome To Dungeness


In 2011 I photographed the area of Dungeness in Kent, England. It became my first work published as a photo-essay in The Guardian Weekend Magazine. 

Fabled as Britains only desert its an area I knew well as I grew up with a view of the nuclear power stations of Dungeness from my bedroom window. And although it is somewhere often cited for its desolation and remoteness I found life there, real life. 

I am currently crowdfunding this photo book on Kickstarter, it’ll be the third in a series of self-published photo books from my archive. In-A-Gadda-Da-England and When In The Lone Star State being the previous books. 

I’ve got till the 23rd June 2024 to raise the £7500 to make the book.
