“Throwing new light on familiar waters”
Dale Berning Sawa for Photomonitor
Worthing was once a thriving tourism resort. Now it conveys a sense of nostalgia and renewal.
The 6 trees on West Parade were shot on various lenses each month for a year (July 2017 - June 2018).
Taking these images was my meditation, my fix, my monthly puzzle. A Wabi Sabi of Photography.
A Live Arts Project captured in vain. The act of taking the images became more important than the result. The apparatus becomes secondary, the ‘mise en scène’ takes centre stage. #PostPhotography
First shown at Holborn library as part of Morley College tutors “Questions of Worth” exhibition, the work was invited to “Seaside: Photographed” a group show curated by Val Williams & Karen Shepherdson at Turner Contemporary, Margate 25 May - 8 Sept. 2019. The palms also feature as chapter cover in the book published by Thames & Hudson.
Extracts of the work were selected and exhibited at Artists Atlantica, Fotonoviembre 2019, Tenerife | Spain.
The work is touring to the John Hansard Gallery, Southampton where a playlist was also put together by Turner Sims Concert Hall Manager Kevin Appleby: https://www.turnersims.co.uk/news/seaside-photographed-a-musical-response/ and it’s showing at Newlyn Art Gallery Cornwall from Feb - June 2021.
