‘A weird British Summer’ is a series of images taken in Blackpool from when England and the rest of the world lived and continually still through a pandemic, due to Coronavirus. The photos explore the effect that was implemented throughout the nation, with the national government order to ‘stay at home and control the virus.’ Places that are busy and full of life were alarmingly very desolate and empty. I was astonished by the abnormality of the scenes I witnessed and immediately struck by the hidden beauty of it all, with a significant urge to document with my camera. With this in mind, I didn’t want to highlight the abnormalities that I was witnessing throughout my imagery, the images that I had taken I wanted to radiate the energy, positivity, and escapism that the coast normally has to offer when people visit.
