This unique collection of images are now published here for the first time and will be exhibited at a special inaugural venue in Grimsby where the FISH TOWN image collection was produced. Before the whole collection goes on a UK gallery tour.
The 1990 image collection are the very last photographs documenting Grimsby Fish Docks in all their glory. Prior to new European legislation coming into force
The 2020 image collection documents the new fish and processing industry as we leave the European Union.
Compared to 30 years ago. It’s like a mephitic shanty town to a seafood science lab.

Nowhere in Great Britain does such a natural diversity occur within such a small area.
Nested on England’s panoramic east coast, Donna Nook proffers an outstanding natural ecology, English Nature protection, carbon reducing salt flats, a rare large breeding
grey seal colony alongside billion dollar fast jets flown by top gun pilots.
A unique world war 2 history and rich agricultural farmland.
