202mc Rethink, React, Respond: Brighton video

with 4 comments

This project was  a collaboration between myself and five other people from the university.  I took all the images for the project whilst others conducted interviews and put the video together.

It depicts the emptiness and loneliness that the seaside has on people, and also the decline in people spending money at such places.  Feel free to leave a comment…

  1. Nice video. They say you’re never so alone as when you’re in a crowd…

    The seaside is, stereotypically, a place where good times are to be had, money is to be spent, people are to be kissed quick and squeezed slowly. A place for family or illicit liaisons.

    If you’re outside of all that, on your own, not enough money, there can be few places as alienating as a seaside town.

    Thanks for that, it’s always nice to see a different slant on your home town.

  2. Thanks for the comment. Yes, the alienation of being on your own in such a place does have the opposite feeling to what the seaside hopes to give people.

    I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Its always great to take on board other peoples views and opinions. Love the bit ‘they say you’re never so alone as when you’re in a crowd…’ That sums it up a treat. Thankyou
