Home    Fish Town. A documentary project covering the demise of a fishing towns cultural heritage prior to new EU legislation.

DOCUMENTARY ASSIGNMENT. Personal project. Limited selection of 150 original images.


Description
- Coverage of the Fish Docks in Great Grimsby over a 7 month period; every day from 04.30 to around lunch time. Prior to new EU regulations that came into force effectively ending a cultural 150 year heritage. All the selected images where hand printed on Silver Gelatin fine art paper, framed and exhibited for the town to visit over a week long exhibition. All the prints sold. I am now preparing to continue the project, photographing the docks, its characters and daily life, as it is today! As we leave the EU. A future exhibition and book is being planned.
