Nash began experimenting with photography from 1930 onwards. In this photomontage from around 1936, he uses images of found objects juxtaposed to powerful effect. Heavily influenced by the surrealists’ interest in the symbolic value of objects, Nash’s Swanage depicts a world that is both familiar and deeply strange. He identified a particularly surreal atmosphere in the town, which remained one of his favourite places throughout his life.
