Apiary is the second book by Melbourne-born, London based photographer Robin Friend which continues to mine the surreal and sinister, implicit or explicit in the British landscape.
Here, Friend’s cinematic lens uncovers the dark underbelly of Lewes, a town in South East England renowned for its wild, bacchanalian, festivities around Guy Fawkes’ Night, the uniquely British festivity celebrating the failure of an attempted act of extreme political terrorism. The book’s publisher describes Apiary as ‘a shadow space, reflecting a contemporary moment where ideas of democracy, identity and cohesion feel stretched to breaking point. Friend uses the night as a metaphor to consider the rippling reflections of unrest, inequality and instability lapping the British Isles.’
