Prospect Cottage: Derek Jarman’s seaside home – in pictures | Film

Prospect Cottage on the beach at Dungeness, Kent was a home and sanctuary for the artist and film-maker Derek Jarman. The gardens are world famous, but the interior, shielded from public view by net curtains hung by his partner, Keith Collins, after his death, has been largely unseen. This haven has been photographed by Gilbert McCarragher, and Prospect Cottage: Derek Jarman’s House is published by Thames & Hudson


Prospect Cottage, located on the beach at Dungeness, Kent, served as a home and sanctuary for the artist and film-maker Derek Jarman. While the gardens are world-famous, the interior, hidden from public view by net curtains installed by his partner Keith Collins after his passing, has remained largely unseen. Thanks to photographer Gilbert McCarragher, the interior of this haven has been captured in Prospect Cottage: Derek Jarman’s House, published by Thames & Hudson.
