A Common Foe

Saturday 15 July 2017 - 24 September 2017

Description:

For generations, fishing vessels from all over the world were free to exploit the rich
waters around Iceland. In Hull, fortuneswere made and a distinct way of life was created by the city’s fishing community, building a thriving community around Hessle Road.
But the freedom to make a living came at a cost for all relying on the resources of
the North Atlantic Ocean.

As the decline of fish stocks led to conflict between friends and former allies, the challenges of the sea remained. Seafaring communities on both sides of the Cod Wars
reflect on confrontation, co-operation and loss, in this film and photography exhibition by Simon Sharp.
