We English




From August 2007 to September 2008, Simon Roberts went on a quest to find out what makes him English. Photographing ordinary people engaged in a variety of pastimes resulted in an elegiac exploration of identity, attachment to home and land, and the relationship between people and place. The book sparks off a range of associations and images, of feelings and senses, which all helped Roberts to come to terms with the landscapes that form an important part of his Anglo-Saxon being.
