Marc Newton, local photographer is basing a project around our beloved Southend on Sea.
If you fancy gettig involved please take a look at the synopsis of the project.
”This is an ongoing project based around the people and events of Southend on Sea in Essex. Southend is somewhere that’s familiar to me as it reminds of days out when I was growing up in the East End and now being a Essex resident it’s somewhere I frequent often. I like it because it seems to incorporate a wide variety of what would be called England. You have the kitsch of the English seaside alongside the eclectic working class that roam it. I try to find the people that represent these places and bring them to light in photography. Southend is a great place to document today’s society in all its glory and that’s what this project is trying to do.’ A photo from the project has already won the prize of ‘Street Photo of the Year’, full details can be found here
