Specialised Diploma Dave Collerton

TQ2 is the the area of Torquay I call home. It abounds with every type of life, opportunity and misery Torquay has to offer. From the very opulance and grandure of the Grand Hotel and the multi-million pound investments at Abbey Sands right through to some of the worst housing and most difficult trading locations in the Bay. To me, TQ2 is very much black & white, hence my choice of medium for this project. In this specialised diploma, I have sought to capture in just a few images how affluence and poverty can so easily co-exist in just a few square miles of land. For me at least, they are Worlds Apart.
