The Shipping Forecast : Mark Power

There are many photo-books about England and identity, and many follow a similar threads. In this book Power takes aspect of England, the daily shipping reports, and uses this to embark on a journey, a long four year journey, to capture the country. In the process he manages to capture a series of narratives about the nation, which David Chandler reminds us in his introductory essay, 'only resonate if they and are admitted into the chamber of the home'.
