During the course of this project members of the public were invited to post ideas of events and leisure pursuits that I could come and photograph. It struck me as a suitably democratic way of working, positioning me as it did alongside my fellow countrymen - a citizen, not just an onlooker - and attempting to involve people, to a certain degree, in their own representation. The ideas that were posted provide an interesting snapshot of England in 2008 in their own right. They illustrate what's important to people and explore their own thoughts on the notion of Englishness. You can read all the ideas below or download a pdf here.
