In Memory Of... from the series 'Beachy Head'

College/University: London College of Communication
Course Level/Title: M.A. Photographic Arts
Date: 2007 - ongoing

As Britain's highest cliff edge, Beachy Head in south east England is known for both its quintessential English scenery and as a location for suicide attempts. In Memory Of... is the first series of works in a larger photographic project entitled Beachy Head. Documenting the shrines found along its pathways, these memorials stand alone at the intersection of both private mourning and public grief. Through the quality of light and feeling for nature, they become symbolic of human fragility and our relationship with loss, tragedy and death. www.wendypye.co.uk
