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.

Lewes bonfire celebrations - i suspect you may know about this one, but this is by far the biggest and most interesting celebration of bonfire night - particularly as it involves the whole of the local community and is of immense political and cultural importance, not just to Lewes, but for the UK - not least the fact that if someone proposed such an event today the health and safety people would laugh in their face!!

Strangely, it still seems rather like a special, underground celebration unbeknown to outsiders...
