“My earliest memories are of the sea. I’ve never lived far from it for more than a few months. The restless movement of the waves and the swiftly changing moods echo my own restless and moody nature.
In 2021 I started this project, letting the changing faces of the seacoast inspire my images, finding ways to show the beauty of what some people find to be a very commonplace landscape.
My goal is to give voice to the unspoken in this otherwise unnoticed place.”

Madeleine Lenagh, from Perpetual Motion
