Rollercoasting: The Kent Coast

7th May 2022

Frank Watson’s latest book, Rollercoasting contains 40 colour photographic images and an introductory essay that explores the Kent coast as a frontier between England and Europe. The coastline fluctuates between the flatlands of Thanet and Dungeness and the undulating chalk hills and cliffs of the North Downs.

The photographs allude to the way certain sites are historically respected whilst other places remain quiet and overlooked. The images attempt to portray a coastline that is shaped by both respect and contempt, where the natural and the industrial are often at odds with one another.

Frank will be doing a book signing and talk at Photo London on May 14th at 2.00pm with the Albumen Gallery. Rollercoasting is available from Art Data, who will be at Offprint Tate Modern on the same weekend.
