Living By The Seaside

St Annes Seaside Photowalk

I feel an affinity for the seaside and all things coastal. It makes me happy to live only a minutes walk away from the powerful and vast expanse of the sea.

Last year there was a wonderfully inspiring documentary presented by the poet and author Owen Sheers called Art and the Sea on BBC Four. Unfortunately it’s no longer on the BBC iPlayer, but you can see a short clip from it featuring the photographer Martin Parr here → Martin Parr’s Seaside

“As an island nation the sea has exerted a powerful influence on some of Britain’s best known artists. It has led to some of the finest British paintings from the likes of Constable and Turner and continues to be fertile territory for prominent artists today.” (Quote from the BBC website)

Blackpool Airshow 2010

Blackpool Airshow Display By Yannick Dixon Photographic Works

On Sunday 8th August 2010 thousands of people gathered on Blackpool beach to admire a fabulous air display.

The event took place between South and Central piers just after 4pm and began with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight which featured a historic Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster Bomber.

The Breitling Wing Walkers (the world’s only formation wing-walking team) were also there and, to conclude the airshow, the RAF Red Arrows Formation Team performed a spectacular aerobatic display.

Blackpool Revellers

Blackpool Revellers By Professional Photographer Yannick Dixon

This photograph entitled Blackpool Revellers is semi-inspired by the article Personal Projects Can Make A Difference written by Grant Scott for Professional Photographer magazine as it inspired me to take a closer look at the current direction of my photographic practice and, more importantly, to continue shooting new images for my personal projects. Like many photographers, personal work is the driving force behind my creative inclinations and an important aspect of any artistic practice.
