Walking to Essex for Pages Of magazine
Over the winter I walked from London to my hometown of Leigh-on-Sea, near Southend and Canvey Island in Essex. The point was to mimic the migration of Essex-people of the early-to-mid 20th century, following the slum clearances and general search for a better life that happened to East Enders before and after the Second World War. I wrote it up for the pilot issue of the exciting new Pages Of magazine, who decided to run it over six pages. The magazine is purchasable £4 from various newsagents and galleries in London.
