'Coastline' (pub. 2003), is a book and exhibition of colour photographs by contemporary British photographer Roy Mehta, previously shown atthe Tom Blau Gallery, London and Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea.
"Over the last seven years Roy Mehta has built an extraordinary portrait of our coast and people, photographing throughout the kingdom from Brighton to Tintagel, Southend to the Outer Hebrides.
As an island nation, the history and very identity of Britain is inextricably linked with the sea. Mehta's images present afresh the diversity of this heritage, with starkly beautiful landscapes forming a counterpoint to intimate portraits of families, lovers, friends and strangers.
Whether communicating a sense of distance, intimacy, affection, or regret, these images capture the universal reflection that we inevitably feel when faced with the sea.
These are warm and affectionate images, demonstrating the respect between the photographer and subjects and revealing a quiet dignity."
Keith Cavanagh, director Tom Blau Gallery
