Great British Seaside

NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM
MARCH 2018 – SEPTEMBER 2018

From the abandoned piers to the dazzling arcades, celebrate the British seaside through the lenses of Britain’s most popular photographers, featuring Tony Ray-Jones, David Hurn and Simon Roberts and new work by Martin Parr.

Working with Elbow Productions, I made 5 films for the exhibition with additional social media content. I acted as a shooting–director and editor.
