Abstract

Looking specifically at the Dorset coast; a place designated a 'world heritage site' and replete with cultural discourse such as the novels of Thomas Hardy, the photographs of Paul Nash and the history of the south coast holiday trade. This paper used material from local and national photographic archives alongside contemporary practice, in order to understand how a network of visual factors shape a sense of place formerly established by factors such as literature, the tourist imagination and the English landscape tradition.
