It has been said that the seaside is the place that British photographers have instead of the street. With that in mind along with Inspiration from the likes of Tony Ray Jones, Fish and Chips is an ongoing series of observations that show how the British public spend their time at the seaside.
"Going to the seaside was like going back in time, in a sense, to a country that was still struggling to become modern. And that's what he wanted to find here - a place that you could record eccentricity and you could record some sort of essence of what people were about. There's a sort of abandon about the seaside, you find people performing in a way that they wouldn't do and then in that performance they're revealing something of themselves that they wouldn't normally do."
