Hoemarket was taken on my visit to Blackpool in 2020. I had been in nearby Preston to take photos of the famous Preston Bus Station for Design Anthology Magazine so decided to swing by Blackpool. Blackpool has the most definitive character in the UK. It knows exactly what it is. Along the front with the hundreds of hotels and bars I chanced upon this perfect moment. The building behind is a strip club, makes you wonder is this chance or revenge.
About the artist: Samuel Ryde is a London-based photographer with a passion for noticing the un-noticed objects and architecture of everyday human life. Though his lens remarkable characters emerge from unremarkable spaces. Hand dryers in washrooms, telephone boxes that have become invisible on street corners, derelict buildings with old signs and new graffiti. Each one of them telling a story of the moments shared by other people in another time.
