Remember those summers at the beach? Drifting between the hot sand and cool water…collecting shells… balmy nights at the caravan park.
The sun, sand and surf are intrinsic to Australian culture and the beach evokes different memories for all of us. Like yesterday examines our relationship with the beach through the lens of nostalgia, questioning the sense of loss and longing that accompanies our seaside memories. Are we yearning for simpler times and days gone by, or does looking back make us realise how much has changed, not changed enough or needs to change more?
