Jane Austen’ England

Between the British bucolic countryside of Devon and the centenary shops on Bond Street in London, we can still, two hundred years after the passing of Jane Austen, still wonder around in the England of her novels.

The photographer of Ian Teh takes us on the trail of the novelist and her characters and makes us travel in the most memorable scenes described through her works : we can imagine Louisa falling down the stairs of the Cobb of Lyme Regis harbour, and Chawton House where Jane Austen spent the last years of her life. As well, we find Chatsworth House, the Cavendish domaine, that has served as a model for Darcy’s Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice.

However, the place where we realize the whole extent of the vivacity of the Georgian era in England during the 21st century remains without a doubt in Bath. Every year, in September, takes place the Jane Austen Festival. During ten days, passionate literary fans of Jane Austen dress up and parade through the city dressed in military uniforms of the era and Regency costumes. In 2014, the world record of the most dressed up people in costumes in the same place was beaten : 550 people gathered in the famous Assembly Rooms of Bath.
