About manonabeach

“On a beach…welcome to, where you can see my beach visits and enjoy a flavour of the beach, even when you’re not there, including interviews asking

“What does the beach mean to you…?”

The project celebrates the elemental power of the beach and its profound effect on the people who enjoy being where the air, land and sea meet. The beach means different things to different people, whether it’s enhancing creativity, decisiveness and energy, being restorative and settling, part of a routine, a reference point through generations, freedom or just fun.

In the narratives here, you’ll see and hear people re-present their emotions, perceptions and recollections, all drawn out by the enhancing effect of the beach. manonabeach is a construct, a passive Everyman, whose role is to bring these qualitative findings directly to you, for you to draw whatever conclusions you want from them.

With manonabeach, you can enjoy a regular glimpse of beaches and beachgoers, wherever you are, nearly in real time, as the films are almost always uploaded on the same day as the visit.”
