Synopses & Reviews
The quintessential British landscape--the seaside--is the subject of these nostalgic Polaroids by the acclaimed English photographer Jon Nicholson. At once immediate and ephemeral, these delicately hued, slightly muted images taken with original, out-of-date film stock depict the faded glory of Yarmouth's giant piers, Brighton's pebbly shores, the Blackpool Pleasure Beach amusement park, and many other resorts across Britain. Each of the 70 photographs is beautifully reproduced on its own page with descriptive captions. A foreword by Joseph Galliano provides a wry, contemporary perspective on these beloved, centuries-old locations.
"Anyone who likes photography...the nostalgic Instagram aesthetic, or historic British beaches will certainly enjoy this book." --Library Journal
