About the Book
Leigh-on-Sea is a fishing town of rich charm half an hour's drive east of London. Mark Taylor’s photography captures the essence of this quirky estuary hinterland — an atmospheric quarter of cobbled alleys, cockle sheds and wharves strewn with ropes and nets. This is the backdrop for daily dramas comprising bait diggers and day trippers, boat owners and cafe crawlers. Fleeting moments in the worlds of this unwitting cast are celebrated here in images which tell stories, or parts of stories.
