Simon Roberts travelled across England in a motorhome between August 2007 and September 2008, for this portfolio of large-format tableaux photographs of the English at leisure. Roberts’ national survey was informed by the photography of his predecessors and by the romantic tradition of English landscape painting. This is Roberts' second book and was included in Martin Parr’s 30 most influential photobooks of the last decade.
