Watford Gap is an intimate study of the myriad different people who pass through the doors of the UK’s first Motorway Service Station. Achieved by setting up a pop-up studio at the northbound Watford Gap services, my aim was to fix a snapshot-in-time of the different people seen passing through its doors on a daily basis. The title features an exclusive prosimetrum by the celebrated poet David Harsent as well as archival imagery from the prolific documentary photographer Martin Parr. The work is a both light-hearted and touching portrait of the UK on the move.
