In 2006 the Careers Service at Brighton University commissioned me to photograph all of their campuses. I was surprised to find out they had one in Hastings. I took the hour long train journey, made one image of the campus and several of Hastings disused pier.

On Tuesday, October 5th, 2010 Hastings Pier was destroyed by fire: Two teenagers were detained on suspicion of arson but later released due to lack of evidence. I felt compelled to go back and have a look at what was left.

I found a great deal more than the charred remains of 1930's pleasure pier. Hastings appealed to me. I kept going back with an instant camera to look around before the Tourists arrived. I'm delighted to say the pier is being rebuilt.
