Essex artist Alan Hockett has spent the last year walking the Essex coastline, he is fascinated with capturing the remote and isolated areas where the land and sea coexist. Using a pinhole camera to radically re-interpret this landscape in a way reminiscent of the early days of photography. His homemade camera (a baked bean can) distorts the image, creating emotion and tension whilst keeping the essence of the original subject.
