Flookburgh fishermen never say they are going fishing, just that they are ‘going to the sand’. They travel to where they need to by ancient tractors, negotiating tides and constantly changing sands and channels.
.
.
I have been working with Mike, one of a handful of full time fishermen still working traditionally on the Bay for a couple of months, it’s been fascinating to learn the detail of this constantly changing livelihood and honoured he’s agreed to work with me over the coming year.

Today. Morecambe Bay.

“Not quite land. Not quite sea.
Sands unstable underneath your feet.” Andrew Michael Hurley, author of The Loney. I’m not sure if the ‘gothic’ genre is my thing but will give it a go.
.
The Loney is “a wild and useless length” of the northwest English coast. Must check it out!

Weston-Super-Mare, 1984

I’ve lived in the hills of Yorkshire so long that sometimes even I forget I grew up by the sea (and once shot on b&w film)!

The Ilford Galerie fibre based print has stood the test of time unlike the mouldy cardboard it was dry mounted on!

In recent weeks I have been back working with @ruralartsthirsk and Thirsk Community Care on the Arts Council England ‘Celebrating Age’ programme aiming to engage older people in arts and culture. This is Sandie, who spent her married life perfecting the making of the most amazing textiles - she’s here wearing her hand knitted lace wedding gloves worn when she got married 63 years ago, aged 19. .

Fortune’s Whitby Smoked Kippers, February 1999 from the series ‘Eat Better, Eat British’. Almost 20 years ago I began working with local food producers and farmers.
.
.
Kippers are north east Atlantic smoked herrings. The herring are soaked in a brine solution for 40 minutes, then smoked over a series of fires made from a mixture of oak, beech and softwood. The oak and beech smoke gently permeate the fish to add flavour and colour them.
.
.
Only available in Whitby.
