About this image

I am interested in how surroundings and environments can affect people’s behaviour.  This series is of people sun-bathing on the beach – an environment where people can relax and behave in a certain manner.  The photographs are not staged and the people in these images did not know that they were being photographed. I only show images with hidden faces, to give viewers the opportunity to scrutinise the details of the image without distraction.
