One of my favourite local spots to do minimal seascapes when the tide is right and weather permitting.

In 1921, T.S. Eliot spent a few weeks in Margate at a crucial moment in his career. He arrived in a fragile state, physically and mentally, and worked on The Waste Land sitting in the Nayland Rock shelter on Margate Sands. The poem was published the following year, and proved to be a pivotal and influential modernist work, reflecting on the fractured world in the aftermath of the First World War as well as Eliot’s own personal crisis.
Below are a few shots of the shelter he sat at near the Nayland Rock that I took in 2016.
The Turner Contemporary has an exhibition which is the culmination of a three year project designed to develop a pioneering approach to curating. Local residents, coming together as the Waste land Research Group, have developed the entire exhibition. Journeys with 'The Waste Land' is consequently the result of many months the group have spent discussing personal connections between art, poetry and life. More information here
