In the last few weeks I have been using film for the first time for several years. It felt both liberating and constraining - and there was the experience of delayed gratification. In all I shot three films, snapping anything that drew my eye, more for fun than anything else. On looking at them expecting to find random dross, I discovered several that drew me in, and felt that the series hung together as a sort of body of work that reflected our times and how I am feeling. Here I present a loose edit from the films in the order in which they were snapped. The photos were taken in Frome, a market-town in Somerset, and Weston-super-Mare, a coastal resort that has seen better days. All photos are Copyright © John Beeching.
