Info and Contact
The Gone series documented Folkestone’s old Amusement Park, known locally as the Rotunda. It was exhibited in August 2007.
The project began in 2003 during the fairgrounds last full summer, before rides began to disappear. The final photograph was shot in July 2007 as the last building of the Rotunda was dismantled.
The Rotunda held many memories for the people of Folkestone; as for many years it was a Folkestone landmark.
The site looks much the same four years on, but there are big plans ahead.
