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.

This week Wednesday 11th to Saturday 14th June is May Bumps on the Cam in Cambridge. This is a form of rowing devised to suit the Cam, where you cannot row side by side. It is almost impossible to describe but each race is several minutes of total chaos and great fun - particularly for spectators who've picnicked on the riverbank first. Taking part are something like 1500 young people.
See for details of Bumps with links to results and times of the races.
