A Different Light

The series, 'A Different Light' a book commissioned by Thurrock Arts Generate, part of a regional initiative funded by Arts Council England, East Richard Heeps provides an alternative vision of Thurrock, with its mixture of industrial and rural landscapes. 
Richard Heeps' unique eye, well known for making the ordinary extraordinary, and capturing Britain on the brink of change, meant he was perfect for providing a completely new perspective on this corner of south Essex on the Thames Estuary.
Richard has taken the commission both literally and metaphorically - using different light as an artistic focus, as well as showing the area in a different light, helping to change perceptions of Thurrock both among local residents and those outside the area.
