In a major photographic survey of these peculiarly British structures, Simon Roberts documents the remaining sixty-four piers using his signature landscape style, echoing the aesthetic and tone of his acclaimed book We English. Whilst some are modest structures, others are elegant and exotic, thrusting out into the sea with characteristic Victorian aplomb.
In 2010, Simon Roberts was selected by the UK Parliament as the official election artist to record the general election. He has exhibited widely with solo shows at the National Media Museum, Bradford; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai.
