Last Easter I began creating a series of photography projects on the Dymchurch Sea Wall – documenting the beach it fronts, the low-lying land it protects, and how both locals and visitors use and respond to the wall.  This Easter, with so much having changed in the world, it feels timely to start sharing some of this work.  Here are a few selects from  Bank Holiday.Photography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights ReservedPhotography copyright Wendy Carrig ©2019 All Rights Reserved

Dymchurch Wall has been a vital sea defence on the Kent coast since it was first established by the Romans.   It’s current construction connects pale concrete walkways with art deco influenced design;  four miles of wall straddle flat marshland and vast sands, and a big sky gives an exquisite quality of light. The surrealist artist Paul Nash made many paintings of the wall most famously The Shore, and the actor and novelist Russell Thorndike based his Dr.Syn stories here at Dymchurch-under-the-Wall.  More recently a Banksy rat has appeared surfing the wall’s concrete curves.
As a photographer I am also inspired.
Last Easter I began photographing my own response to the wall, documenting the beach it fronts, the low-lying land it protects, and the people that are drawn there.  This Easter, with so much changed in the world, it feels timely to revisit this project.
“Serve God, honour the King, but first maintain the Wall”
