A close up photographic exhibition in our new Pizey Gallery space, documenting the lost holidays of lockdown 2020 by local and international artist, Jacob Dear.
The concept for ‘Lost Holiday’ was to document the town, business and people who had been affected by the lack of tourism due to the lockdown. I wanted to capture the images early in the morning, not just because the light is aesthetically beautiful, but as a kid, I remember when I first visited Burnham on holiday, waking up early, full of excitement as the sun rose. This memory I had of Burnham made me wonder how the juxtaposition would look if I made the same images I remember, but during a pandemic. Making this project, has helped me to reconnect with my hometown.
Gallery open Monday to Friday 11am – 4pm
