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.

The Show has 2 main aims: to give people a good day out & to distribute funds raised to local good causes.

The theme of this year's Show is Paradise, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the completion of Paradise Lost by Milton, who lived in Chalfont St Giles for a while.
