8-18 July


On 23 March 2020, the first Covid lockdown was announced.
As his allowed exercise, photographer Jan Enkelmann cycled through an already deserted London. A few days later, he decided that taking his camera on his nightly cycling excursions was a safe way to document different parts of the city.
Like many others he felt compelled to create art from the lack of crowds in usually buzzing landmarks and locations. From the amazing and deeply moving, almost post-apocalyptic, resulting images, Jan created a hardcover photobook of 90 photographs shot during the first coronavirus lockdown in the spring of 2020. Pause. was born. It was published in November 2020; made possible with the support of more than 400 backers of a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter. The first edition sold out in less than four weeks.
JAM on the Marsh is delighted to ­have been allowed to curate this exhibition and present 16 of the original images from the book. These hauntingly beautiful images run along the spine of Romney Marsh; the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway.

New Romney was once a thriving port, with the harbour adjacent to St Nicholas' Church, in front of which a mooring ring can still be seen. In 1287 a storm changed the coastline dramatically and the port was destroyed, the town now being more than a mile from the sea. Four feet of silt were deposited inside the Church and around, which accounts for it being lower than the surrounding area. Large numbers of visitors come annually, attracted by the unique history and architecture; the church is one of the finest in the Diocese of Canterbury.
