One Beach, One Hour, One Mile, One Bag
This work documents found
items discovered along a stretch of the Suffolk coastline in England - challenging our perspective of natural habitats.
A stroll along the shoreline in search of remnants. Traces of human activity - forgotten
clothing, a baby’s bottle top, a glasses case, dog excrement in a bag, take
aways, a pen, a lighter. Dead fish sit among the human debris.
On return from the beach,
walking back along the sea parade – construction and development works present
In a renowned area of natural
beauty, an environment for wildlife, a
place to unwind and enjoy - humans leave
their traces accidental or intentional. Who will take responsibility? Too little or inevitably too late to repair
and rewind. One mile of the British Coast is a speck in the world crisis for the preservation of our seas, oceans, natural habitats and food chain. Is this our legacy - what we wish to leave behind?
