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.

Essex: Suggestion
I am a photographer and saw your pic in todays Times and I think your overall project sounds fascinating.

As you are in Essex i think you could go to Dagenham. It's old white working class territory but always had a history of right wing politics it featured on recent BBC series white working class. Not sure of specific event but Barking and Dagenham as a borough is very interesting. Also Faces nightclub in Gants Hill the nightclub frequented by footballers and wannabe jordan types...could be very intersting to photograph from different perspective to the usual papps who hang outside there on a Sunday night
