TITLE : ON THE EDGE
SERIES
AUTHOR : MARTIN SALTER

 

“I began photographing the English and Welsh coastlines in 1996 on a Rolleiflex and created a body of work looking at both the dangers and strange appeal of nostalgia.

The edge of the land somehow gets stuck in past times longer than the cities which grow and expand with the times.

This is changing now and having returned to shooting in more recent years after a 15 year break I have noticed that the modern world has finally caught up on the coastline.

New development are springing up, contemporary designs of large scale holiday homes are replacing the crumbling, wind battered facades of older buildings, hotels are closing, Air BnB bijou flats are all the rage.”

Martin Salter links :

“On the Edge is an exploration of melancholy as well as optimism, the muted colours of the winter replaced by our increasingly hot summers and each photograph forms part of a larger series – whether is be seaside cafes, car parks, amusement parks or new holiday homes.

I hope to release the work in a series of themed zines over the coming years starting this autumn.

Finishing this project will be difficult as the coast offers photographers so many opportunities of light, atmosphere and Mono No Aware – the japanese concept of the bitter sweet suchness of things. The very essence of life itself.”
