Richly colourful photographs that capture the nostalgia and vulnerability of British seaside resorts. From Blackpool to Brighton, the pastel colours, faded arcades and worn-out carpets of British coastal towns evoke a particular nostalgia. With the changing tides of the British political landscape these traditional resorts appear fragile and some are falling into disrepair. Nevertheless some are thriving (thanks to regeneration funds), and all retain a special charm and retro appeal. Shooting for more than a decade since 2009, Rob Ball has documented over 35 coastal towns. His images serve as a record of a unique culture that is at risk of disappearing forever.
