Statement of Intent

This Creative Panel was submitted for an Associate Distinction on the 15th March 2015

Thirty years ago, I visited Dungeness Beach and photographed an old derelict boat alongside an equally derelict hut. Whilst I did process the film, it took 25 years to get around to printing it, only to discover the image was slightly out of focus – so I went back to re-photograph it.

The boat and hut had sadly gone, but it inspired a fascination in vessels that served their owners, and are now left to rot on the foreshore.

Each takes on a texture and colour in quite a unique way as the ravages of wind, sea and nature slowly reclaim them.
