The exhibition in Blackpool

By Garry Cook

 

These images are the twenty exhibited at the Brilliant Blackpool exhibition in August 2011 at FYCreatives on Church Street, Blackpool.

 

Blackpool is a traditional seaside resort in he county of Lancashire in the north west of England.
 
When I say traditional, I mean flashy, trashy, booze-fuelled, pensioner infested, run-down working-class town. Or you can make up your own mind.
 
My pictures span four tough years trawling the streets and venues of the resort to compile the ultimate social documentary on the town and the people who inhabit it.

 
The project is intended for publication as a book.
