51.5171° N, 0.5784° E is a short 12 page publication based on selected images from Canvey Island, Essex, UK, images taken from a larger series of work 'C1 Monsters' . C1 monsters refers to The C1 imray map which charts The Thames Estuary From Tilbury in Essex to Orfordness in Suffolk. The project consists of a journey which records key estuary points to both personal history and areas of visual intrigue. Utilising props produced and performances documented, the imagery is obscured and transformed into visceral monsters through photographic techniques, post production manipulations, 3D scans and layered sketches. The monsters vary in terms of location; the grotesque, humorous and bizarre these are reoccurring styles in which depict a symbolic tactile presence of the space visited.
