'A pebble beach, scarred cliff faces, concrete boardwalks and grey seas, this exhibition celebrates the south coast in all its faded glory. Like a dowager duchess down to her last tiara, England's southern beaches are beautiful, battered and barren. Thomas Joshua Cooper captures the sublime fragility of Cornwall's shifting sands with his ancient camera, revealing the turbulence of the Atlantic Ocean in his photographs. Guy Moreton's images are hauntingly beautiful and The Caravan Gallery (artists Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale) offer up a pedestrian version of this watery corner, relinquishing the fudge and fondant fancies of the heritage trail for the dirt of the superstore car park and the cut-price bargains.' Jessica Lack, The Guardian Review, 29 July 2006, until 9th September 2006.
