The Crow Stone

A series of photographs featuring photographs of the Crowstone, the well-known and solitary local landmark which stands off the coast at Chalkwell. Mark has been documenting the stone, its interactivity with the public, and the changing tides, seasons and weather over the past couple of years. With every visit he tries to find a new way of seeing it. The stone is a kind of sentinel, keeping guard over the estuary since long before any of us were around, and continuing to do so long after we're gone. It must have stood witness to a lot over the years.
