About this deal

Travelling in a red Mini Cooper, the two men traced the British coast line and dipped into urban, rural and suburban Britain. Running from Friday 18 November to the following Sunday 27 November 2022, Folkestone Book Festival will present a celebration of writing, reading, thinking and debate.

A journey around the UK coast with a poet and a photographer has produced a beautiful and in depth meditation on Black Britishness. In the exhibition and accompanying book Robinson's poetry sits alongside Pitts' images from around the country. He currently presents Open Book for BBC Radio 4 and a forthcoming Afropean podcast funded by a grant from the National Geographic Society. Home is a reminder to smile, a reminder that there may be turmoil in the world, but you have a peace in you, and so you have a home. These objects include a framed model, made by Pitts’ cousin Dean Rogan, titled ‘If Home was a Place: Johny Pitts’ childhood home’.Late last year, I spent sometime in the United States of America, during that time, I went to Puerto Rico for a weekend.

At the end it says to think of it as a contribution to Britain’s imaginary family album, of the everyday humanity of the Black community in Britain. As a photographer, Johny has had work published by Cafe Royal Books and produced essays for the Guardian, The New York Times, Artangel and Arts Council England.Not only that, but so that you can use your awareness and intuition to guide you back home into safety.
