I’ve always been a sea swimmer - the sea has been both joy and solace throughout my life. Its ever changing moods from tranquil to awe inspiring have been a constant source of inspiration, and I’ve been a photographer for almost as long as I’ve swum.
When lockdown hit, being fortunate to live so close to the sea, I kept swimming as my daily exercise, often cycling along the seafront to different spots for my daily dip. This, and circumnavigating Brighton Palace Pier and West Pier helped to add some variety to life under lockdown whilst giving me a unique perspective of the coast. Swimming with just my iPhone in a waterproof case gave me the freedom to capture and share this.
The first 12 images of a growing "Swimming Panoramas" series focus on Brighton’s iconic West Pier and i360 and are being exhibited at the Toll Booth Cafe by the i360.
I continue to swim, and capture the beauty of it, at every opportunity.
