In the years between closure and redevelopment, Dreamland was left to rot. From 2013, photographer Rob Ball captured this Dreamland, mainly using the Victorian tintype wet collodion process. Tatty, forlorn but still oddly majestic, the empty park takes on a haunting air in his photographs. Tintypes are shown alongside contemporary colour shots and historical images of the park sourced from the South East Archive of Seaside Photography, which he directs. book
