“Starkly poignant”

Seaside Photographed review – a rush of revelation ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Seaside Photographed … Michael Bennett’s black and white photographs from the late 1970s…show seasides from Llandudno to St Leonards as melancholy and austere in every season, homing in on the weather-beaten faces of solitary workers – the signalman, the kiosk girl, the caretaker lugging the barrier to a pier in dark rain at closing time. They are starkly poignant laments.”
