Last summer I photographed on the beautiful north Kent beaches of Tankerton and Whitstable.

Last week I learnt that Southern Water regularly releases untreated sewage onto these beautiful beaches as reported in the documentary Our Troubled Rivers. Self-regulated dumping by water companies, together with storm runoff from livestock farms, means beaches and designated bathing waters are often closed, and disgracefully all our rivers are now polluted.

To right this desperate situation and put a stop to profiteering and abuse of our vital natural resource, the activist group SOSWhitstable are urgently petitioning the government to bring the care of our water back into public ownership.

Similarly Surfers Against Sewage ask us to sign their Dirty Money petition. Both groups hope that with re-reinvestment and upgrades the water industry will have the resources to nurse our ailing natural environment back to good health.

Horrible fact that in 2021 alone, water companies released effluence into English and Welsh waterways amounting to 25 years of untreated sewage.

Meanwhile my thanks to the kind and generous people of Tankerton and Whitstable, The Marine Hotel, and this super team :

Photographed adhering to AOP and APA guidelines in respect of Government advice on working during the Covid19 pandemic. This basically meant wearing masks throughout the shoot, social distancing, separate lunch areas, windows open (and dressing with extra layers as there was snow outside), and using loads of hand gel. On the technical side we used a back-up MacBookPro as a second monitor to enable distance viewing by the glam team.

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

I think you can tell how happy I am to be on set with this gorgeous creature.  I am talking of course about Maddison the Dulux Dog photographed here (pre-Covid) with Dulux’s ambassador, the equally gorgeous Fearne Cotton.    Dogs can be the most calming and gentle of creatures and I would love to include one on all my photoshoots.  Meanwhile locked down at home in London I am hugely grateful for the company of our own four-legged friend who helps banish anxiety and brings us joy in these troubled times.
