In Seaside Shelters, Will Scott documents and celebrates the wide variety of shelters adorning the British seasides. A testament to the heyday of British summer holidays and the country’s notorious fickle weather, the shelters now mostly stand deserted. Scott’s talented eye captures the, at times faded, beauty of the buildings.

Most of the shelters were built in the late 19th and early 20th century and cover a wealth of architectural styles, from Victorian to Art Deco to Bauhaus. Locations range from iconic seaside resorts to lesser-known gems along the coast, including Blackpool, the Isle of Wight, Paignton, Bangor, Exmouth and Cromer.

The book features an essay by Edwin Heathcote, Art and Design Critic for The Financial Times. It is published to coincide with the exhibition ‘Seaside Shelters’ by Will Scott showcasing a selection of the photographs featured in the book at the HENI Gallery from 20 July to 19 August 2018.
