West Pier, Brighton

A long exposure at 1:30 a.m. on the 2nd February 2009 on the South Coast of England. 10 minutes after the end of the heaviest snowfall in England for 28 years a rare coat of snow reflects the streetlight highlighting the ghostly remains of Brighton’s West Pier.

The image was used as a metaphor across European press for Britain’s economic collapse both as a result of the recession and inability to cope with the poor weather. Only 4 editions of 20 are left in this print’s edition with only 1 in the larger 80cm edition still available.
