I began my self-funded photo-documentary study of Hull's Hessle Road Fishing Community in the early 1970s using a German Rolleicord Twin-Lens Reflex (TLR) camera - mainly using B&W film with only 12 exposures per roll.
I avoid posed pictures, prefer available light and dislike flash images.
People are my main focus (sorry about that awful pun) and the Hessle Roaders have a zest for life because they live so close to death. Arctic trawling around the coasts of Iceland and Bear Island is the most dangerous job in the world with a high loss of life.
