This postcard from award-winning photographer Simon Roberts certainly brightened up our day. Simon shot ‘Landscapes of Innocence & Experience’ for the London Issue of Boat earlier this year.
In-between issues of Boat we often get a bit lonesome for the travelling lifestyle, spending most of our time daydreaming about distant lands. Luckily, we love to travel vicariously too; through the stories, the photos, and the postcards our contributors and friends send us. Rather than just sticking the postcards we get on our fridge, we have started sticking them up here for all to see. If you would like to share your hometown or holiday with us we would love to hear from you – just send a postcard to the address at the bottom of this page.
We were so pleased when this postcard from the seaside town of Margate in Thanet, East Kent, arrived through the door at the studio this morning. We were even happier to flip it over to see it had been signed by Simon Roberts.
Simon’s photo essay ‘Landscapes of Innocence & Experience’ contrasts photographs taken inside financial institutions in the City of London in 2012, alongside landscapes of protest where groups like Occupy London were reacting against the austerity measures implemented by the coalition government which they see as being directly caused by the financial sector.
