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.

Surf Casting A sport where the participants use a fishing rod to cast a lead weight down a field the longest cast wins. there is a team of people who meet on Bodmin moor in Cornwall to practice very unique and interesting.
I am a student currently studying in Falmouth and came across the event whilst photographing on the moor.Very different to see a group of people walking across the moor with fishing rods in hand
