The Road To Rhyl
Client: Self-initiated work
Küla creative team: Roy McCarthy
When I used to drive lorries for a living I spent quite a lot of time driving between Liverpool and North Wales. It was kind of a dystopic version of the journey I used to take when I was a kid and my Dad would decide a day in Rhyl was what we needed (he wasn't one for long holidays - preferring the kind of daytrip that would allow him to be home for tea and Granada Reports. When I think back to those car journeys they appear bright and warm, and Wales seemed like a great place to be. As an adult, making the same trip in an 18 tonne curtain-sider full of bin-bags, the reality was a bit different.
