Your Ideas

During the course of Simon’s journey around England members of the public were invited to post ideas of events and leisure pursuits that he could photograph, thereby positioning him alongside his fellow countrymen and attempting to involve the ‘English', to a certain degree, in their own representation. The ideas that were posted provide an interesting snapshot of the country in 2008 and work alongside Simon’s photographs. They illustrate what's important to people and explore their own thoughts on notions of Englishness.

Hi Simon, It was lovely to meet you last night. As suggested here is the link to the Cropredy Festival in Oxford.

My parents have been going for a couple of years and from what I can gather it is a bit of an old hippy convention... don't tell them i said that. They will be there again with their camper, which is my Dad's biggest love, second only to my Mum (and hopefuly me), so do give me a shout if you wanted a couple of tour guides.

Good luck!
