“Welcome to Paradise” is a photographic journal by Oli Kellett. He has travelled the UK over the last four years, photographing any road, street, lane or close that contained the word “paradise” in its title. Unsurprisingly, the photos are as far removed from a utopian, cloud-like paradise as you can get. Instead they are just stagnant business parks, flyovers and car parks in places like Blackburn and Hemel Hempstead.
