Between Humber and Holderness

Between Humber and Holderness is an exploration of the liminal space that exists between the land and sea along the Holderness coast. Following heavy rain the soft clay of the cliffs becomes unstable and gives way, slipping down onto the beach below where the material is then washed away southwards by the sea. This cycle of landslips and coastal erosion creates a place of constant change, a littoral and transitional space in which it is possible to observe the movement and fluidity of land. These photographs were made shortly after a period of persistent wet weather in February 2017, accompanied by transcripts of twenty-eight shipping forecasts issued throughout the month.
