Currently exhibiting a set of photographs at the Turner Contemporary’s Seaside Photographed exhibition, Steve Ferrier’s photographs were all taken around the late eighties/early nineties (similar to Craig Atkinson’s Cafe Royal Books era) and follow a coastal journey from Clacton to Weymouth – Hastings gets three spreads. The book is called the Edges of Recession because at the time Steve had just started out as a graphic designer and was getting made redundant a lot, and so seemed to have a lot of spare time on his hands – the working title was Thatcher-on-Sea. Until the Turner Contemporary sent out a call for submissions they had sat untouched in a file for twenty-five years.
