British seaside towns are known for their bright colours and flashing lights, acting as a beacon for day-trippers and holidaymakers, but in a time where the shutters are drawn and the lights aren’t shining, the finer details begin to catch your eye. My final year Degree Project titled Made You Look is a collection of images produced in the empty streets of the British shore, from my hometown of Southend on sea to the Cromer coast, throughout the first year of the Coronavirus pandemic. These photographs form an account of moments that stood out in the silence and Made Me Look.
