Julius; 19 July 2021; Eastbourne, Sussex, United Kingdom.

A grid of six images showing different kinds of "portals". From top left to bottom right: 1. A drainage hole cover; 2. a small panel in a brick wall; 3. a small wooden door in a brick wall; 3. a small green door in a brick wall covered by ivy; 5. a lotto notice; 6. a sticker on a green wall that states "Never Seek Permission". Below the grid the text reads: 19th July 2021 - Eastbourne, East Sussex, UK - I walked from my flat and followed a series of back roads leading eventually to the pier. During my walk I encountered various portals and points of close looking. Julius Smit
