Jaywick, a seaside village in Essex, England. Recently the subject of Channel 5’s documentary Benefits by the Sea.
The village has been identified as the most deprived place in England because of its distressing levels of education, income and crime. Overall it has the lowest score of 32, 844 district of England.
My focus on this project was on Inequality in the UK, specifically, Asset Inequality.
Inequality is the difference in size, degree, circumstances, lack of equality. Inequality is a private matter and can be viewed differently.
On my visit, most of the landmarks were destroyed and many of the people living there were mostly the long-term unemployed.
The wrecked houses were originally beach houses which were built to last only a short period of time.
