England Uncensored

How they drink, how they fuck, how they love – UK Uncensored is Peter Dench's Matin Parr-esque type of seaside freak show and penultimate survey of British culture. Even if Peter Dench's biography is an unrelenting reminder of his Britishness, his photographs are a reminder of a certain unrelenting brilliance.  Painterly, yet journalistic, Dench's photographs capture a society  and a country with the power to take over the world or shrink backwards and digress into infants too drunk to stand or be appropriate in public. "England has never exactly been glamorous. Many of the English still insist on embarrassing themselves, wearing laughable clothing, eating terrible food and behaving inappropriately."
