On first glancing a few images I wasn't too impressed until I looked at them all in detail, The images "We English" as I've shown above, depicts in Photographs a part of English outdoors and leisure activities, from the sweeping landscapes and the people in them as a collective rather than individuals, it shows in a range of images our oddities and customs, from car boots to seaside, birdwatching to surfing he shows our obsession with caravans, alcohol, sports, picnics , BBQ's etc
