Channel Sea Blues


Channel Sea Blues is a collection of photographs, shot around the south coast of England and beyond, by Brighton based artist Ben Gore. In a time in which borders have become such an important issue politically, the book is built around passing delicate moments sprinkled across the shoreline and the feeling of living on the edge of land and sea.

The third photobook by Ben, which follows on from his previous works Second Adolescence and Goodbye, Blue Monday, wonders about the individual experiences of those found at the seaside and the mood of the seaside itself. When collected, these unconnected glimpses into life by the beach create a portrait of the place and the people to be found there.

The book is A4 and 48 pages.
