The Spirit of Brighton & Hove
The Spirit of Brighton & Hove
  • Description

As far back as the 1780s Brighton had become the nation's premier seaside resort and for many people the city of Brighton and Hove, as it has now become, still occupies that exalted position. There is a magnetic attraction to Brighton and Hove that is often difficult to define. It may simply be the excitement of the piers and the 'prom'. It could be the glorious seafront architecture or eating fish and chips sitting in a striped deck-chair on the shingly beach. There is no doubt, however, that it is a city of spectacular contrast, variety and vibrancy and this alone justifies its title as 'Queen of the Watering Places'. Iain McGowan captures the traditional attractions together with the small details that together reveal the remarkable spirit of the 'City by the Sea'.

Iain McGowan is a professional photographer living in West Sussex and specialising in landscape and environmental photographer. He is the author of many books for Halsgrove, including Portrait of the Sussex Coast. Many of his early school-days were spent at Hove and he has been visiting Brighton and Hove ever since, a city he still finds exhilarating and inspirational.
