I started photographing Eastbourne Pier a year ago.
An informal photography challenge to myself, capturing the same subject in different ways, at different times from various points of view.
I never actually expected to enjoy it as much as I have.
But over the weeks it grew on me.
Not just as a subject to photograph, there was something about it’s determination to survive. It’s stood proudly from the coastline for over 100 years, survived 2 World Wars, fires, weathered countless storms and the pounding of thousands of feet and crashing waves.
I do hope they rebuild, as one of only 58 piers left in the UK, it would be a shame if such an iconic structure of our seaside were left to tumble into the sea.
