Created over a period of five years, in all weathers and seasons, John Brockliss' new series Restless is a photographic documentary of the ever-changing vistas of Britain's seascapes.

The collective images John has assembled for his latest exhibition, at the Brighton gallery North Contemporary Fine Art, as well as a photobook, titled Restless.

His images, many of which are taken at sea or in the face of storms, are a personal exploration of the unique sense of space, power and light of Britain’s coastlines.

Born in 1950, John is a UK photographer specialising in maritime, documentary and reportage photography.
