Coast to Coast | Sandsend & Dolphins! | North Yorkshire Photographer

After a flurry of activity getting some big assignments in for my Masters course I confess I’ve barely picked up a camera in August. My focus has been on my installation of my work in progress on the project The Strandline, which took place in my studio as part of the Ryedale Open Studios over the summer. You can read more about my installation at the open studios here.

But I couldn’t resist some phone pictures on a recent trip with my children to Sandsend near Whitby in North Yorkshire – which now I’ve moved north to Malton is just a stone’s throw away.

Coast to coast | July | North Yorkshire photographer

I’ve probably been to the coast more times in the last six weeks since I moved to Malton than I have for the last six months. It’s so much more accessible; there’s so many fantastic beaches and coves to explore and swim in; and I’ve been spurred on my the impending assignment deadline for my Photography MA to show a work in progress portfolio on my project The Strandline.

Coast to Coast | June | Filey! | North Yorkshire photographic artist

At last the northerner moves back north (not quite all the way but to Yorkshire at least!).

After 20 years living in London, over a decade of them coming home to the same front door, it wasn’t easy to leave. London has given me a husband and a family; the most amazing and deep friendships; travels and an exciting career ‘In the Thick of It’; lots of gin and laughter; and very many hair styles and colours.

So we packed ourselves off and of course we headed to the sea! This may be our last trip to the sea in the southern part of the UK for a while as the move north nears closer…

Coast to Coast – February: Memories of the sea, Part Two | London family photographer

Lockdown has forced me to think about me perspective on the sea in a more introspective manner than I’d intended when I started this project, but it has thrown up some interesting concepts and musings.

Last month I pondered on the water cycle using the snowfall as a means to contemplate water molecules trapped in snow, as a metaphor for how we found ourselves in lockdown – misplaced, adrift even.

For February’s perspective I’ve thought more about how our memories of the sea are closely associated with our relationship to it. And I’ve looked for clues within the city that remind us of the coast.
