Around The Corner

  • Abbie Hopper

Around The Corner focuses on encouraging appreciation of corner shops, aiming to highlight their value to both local communities & to British Culture. The book consists of a series of photographs from various corner shops in Bournemouth, a collection of responses from customers explain the reasons why people shop in their local corner shop, what they buy & the memories they have associated to them. Interviews with the owners of the shops featured, also provide an insight into their daily lives and the shops themselves. This project evolved during Covid-19 to become a testament to celebrating the community spirit of corner shops in the UK.
