Description

Dreamlands / Wastelands documents Irish photographer Rhiannon Adam’s fascination with ‘Britishness’ and takes its title from T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, and Margate’s Dreamland amusement park.

Consisting of expired dreamlike Polaroid and Impossible Project instant photos of the resort towns of Margate and Benidorm, this book is influenced by Rhiannon’s isolated childhood spent on the sea, when English soil was a distant dream. It is a journey inspired by literary descriptions and rose-tinted nostalgia, using a photographic format more often associated with the 1970s family snapshot.

Images of the two resorts sit side by side, each spread drawing out the similarities between Brits at home and abroad, alluding to the boom of the package holiday partially resulting in the bust of the British seaside.

The pictures capture our collective experience of the seaside holiday, harking back to a time when life was simpler. The film’s expired imperfections echo the scars of time passing and memories transforming, blurring the boundaries between past and present, fiction and reality and mirror the cracks and decay that permeate the walls of every British resort town.

Dreamlands / Wastelands is published by Jane & Jeremy in a first edition of 100 numbered copies with a signed print.

Rhiannon Adam will be signing copies at the launch of Dreamlands / Wastelands Thursday 29 May, 18.30.

Free event, no booking.
