Entry Description

Nothing Happens Photographs taken during and after an unexpected fall of snow over Brighton on the south coast of England. A seaside town, popular with tourists and day trippers in the summer, Brighton takes on a silent and surreal poetry in a freezing snow fall at 3am. “Nothing happens. Nobody comes, nobody goes. It's awful.” ― Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot
