Changing seascape on display
THE second of Pecorama’s 2010 art weeks – Photography and Ceramics - features a snapshot of the changing tides at Seaton seafront.
Professional photographer Jolly Sargent, from Musbury, has been taking photos of the sea at 8.30am nearly every day since January. His aim is to create a year-long catalogue of images.
Four panels are on show in the Station Gallery at the tourist attraction in Beer until Saturday, October 2. Each represents two months and contains up to 25 of the photos of the 50 he took during those times.
Jolly, who works freelance for Pecorama, creating images for its brochures and publicity campaigns, got the idea while cycling.
He said: “I cycle everywhere, and cycle along the seafront most mornings. I thought all last summer I’d like to take pictures, and started at the beginning of the year.”
