A recent project in collaboration with photographer Joanne Coates, Fishing into the Future showcases stories of those in the fishing communities, working hard to make a living.

Featured in Stack Magazine’s blog:

‘Fishing into the Future was created to tell the stories of fishermen working off the north-east of Scotland, home to some of the most diverse fishing grounds in the world. The print is is a way to connect the work with the community featured in it: “One of the aims of the newspaper was that fishermen would share it — display it in village halls and on their boats with crew”.’
