Portraits at Sea

MARITIME MUSEUM, Queen Victoria Square,, Hull, HU1 3DX

22 Sep - 16 Dec 2018

Family Friendly

The characters and stories of Hull’s seafarers are brought to life in this exhibition of portraits by Dan Llywelyn Hall.

During Hull’s City of Culture year in 2017, Dan had numerous sittings with the men who shaped the seafaring industry. Although based in the Merchant Navy club Dan met both fishermen and merchant seamen and heard how occupations changed as a response to the challenging times faced by the city’s maritime community.

An accompanying film documentary by Ann-Marie Conlon shows Dan carrying out the sittings and discussing the lives and roles played by the mariners who formed a vital part of Hull’s social history.
