Thanks, Marc - I do try to fully engage as much as I can with communities I work with. Becoming part of the tribe, honesty and acceptance are essential in long-form documentary work. πŸ‘ƒπŸ‘ƒ

Cheers Paul, I simply try to observe & record that's all. To quote the photographer Robert Capa: β€œThere is one thing the photograph must contain, - the humanity of the moment.”

Thank you, Mark - Nick Hedges' Fishing Industry is a brilliant documentation of life at sea. My Seafarer's work was also commissioned originally by Amber/Side Gallery . Peter Fryer also did a series on a North Shields fishing boat:

The pit heaps were a great playground - we used to sled down on old conveyor belting - a dangerous sport as a youngster.

Thank you, John - many thanks for purchasing my books, it's very much appreciated. Pity you hadn't picked up a camera to record the pits, it would have been great to document the coal industry in Shiremoor.

Day 213 'understands' the issue of holiday hunger, this, I highly doubt, I doubt he's ever had the experience of bare cupboards, the stress of knowing where the next meal is & he never will.

Thank you, Jack - The recordings contain some great stories of life at sea, everything from knife fights in Singapore bars to South American brothels. I eventually intend to produce a short film using the audio & stills.

The seafarers depicted were in their 50s at the time, so hopefully, they are still alive & well.
