Iron Men in Wooden Ships
The towns of Fleetwood, Flookburgh, Sunderland Point and Morecambe all have a long fishing heritage supported by England’s largest intertidal bay. The few fishing communities left around Morecambe bay continue to work in a way that is so reminiscent of an older age. The people I have met, have for me, come to embody this vanishing way of life.
As progressive technology has revolutionized industrial fishing, the work in this exhibition uses traditional and new media that aims to interactively engage the audience with tangible photographs.
