Photobook Passing Through makes up Part I of the installation Peacehaven in III Parts.
Peacehaven was once a utopian dream, a statement of post-war optimism. Passing Through is the product of a research project which focuses on re-representing the history of this town. Original archive material, a range of historical materials and the photographers’ own contemporary photographs combine to create an emotionally charged and intelligent multi-layered narrative. A sense of temporality is embedded throughout as past and present, archive and contemporary present themselves as Peacehaven’s new archive.
