Beneath everyday photographs of food banks, punks, pleasure arcades, swingers’ clubs, shelters and new-build houses, Tim Richmond’s Love Bites describes a waning unease within coastal towns of Southwest England: a microcosm of post-austerity, post-Brexit Britain. Richmond allows these tensions to simmer on the surface: food poverty, isolation, commercial decline, housing precarity,
homelessness, unfulfilled desire and longing mingle in the overcast, wide skies of the channel and its flat, sprawling coastline.

Continuing in a long line of British photographers that weave poetry and lyricism into social documentary projects, Richmond uses a delicate colour palette and sympathetic lens to capture the everyday realities of isolation and desire in this corner of Southwest England.
