I wanted to take apart my relationship with the seaside, treading the boundary between expectations and reality. I contrasted the busy and vibrant beach-life with the tranquil escape of being submerged. My relationship with the seaside has always been complex, seaside influences such as Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight; and Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange are some of my favourite artworks. However, they are vastly different to my experiences with the stressful nature of British seasides; the pressure to capture every last moment of sun whilst packed onto a crowded beach.
