Award-winning photographer, Craig Easton, well known for his landscape work and intimate portraits of real lives, explores the past and present. His work will bring together three strands of the fisherwomen’s story: their heritage, their journey and contemporary portraits, including exciting new commissions of Hull’s own fisherwomen.

Featuring more than 22 large format portraits and landscapes, plus an audio visual presentation with almost 100 images and voiceover by local Hull fisherwomen Dawn Walton, the exhibition will highlight the central and essential role women play in the modern fishing industry today. Nowadays, many women still work in the demanding industry and their work is now almost done entirely behind closed doors in processing factories, sheds and smokehouses.

With his work, Craig has followed the traditional route of the herring trade from Shetland down the east coast, via Hull to Great Yarmouth exploring the role of women in the fishing industry.

Following the exhibition, some of Craig’s new work of Hull women will be used within the planned new displays at Hull Maritime Museum, as part of Hull’s major maritime project.
