Boardwalk Empire, Saturday Telegraph Magazine

I’ve recently started a new body of work called Pierdom which is published in today’s Saturday Telegraph Magazine. The series documents the British Pier – monuments of Victorian engineering and eccentricity.

“There is something irresistible about the great British pleasure piers. They combine a wonderful jumble of national passions: our fascination with the coast and the sea, with Victorian engineering and with the beautiful, eccentric folly that architecture provides every now and then. Add to that the idea of pleasure itself – from slot machines to concerts, as well as the simple charm of a walk out towards the ocean, or a stolen kiss at the end of the promenade.” Dominic Bradbury
