Abstract

This paper presents a piece of practice-based photographic research called Going Away that explores the coast as a ‘remembered place’ based on my own childhood visits to the seaside. The work takes the form of wall-mounted prints, while existing also as a limited edition artist’s book. Going Away is fictional in that, although it depicts real places and real objects, it is not the same actual place experienced in childhood. Rather, it is a place that triggers notions of escape and imaginative departure into past time. The nineteen photographs that make up this body of work were taken along several distinct stretches of the Cumbrian coast. Going Away, although showing particular locations, suggests a more generic childhood memory of the seaside and the loss of those times.
