Fisherwomen: The heritage and tradition of women working in the fishing community

Saturday 24 August - Sunday 27 October 2019

Description:

Fisherwomen celebrates the tradition and importance of women in the fishing industry by following the traditional route of the herring trade from Shetland down the east coast, via Hull to Great Yarmouth.  It will highlight the central role of women in the fishing industry today, even though their work is now almost entirely done behind closed doors in processing factories, sheds and smokehouses

In this exhibition, photographer Craig Easton, explores the past and present bringing together the three strands of the ‘Fish Wives’ story: their heritage, their journey and contemporary portraits, including exciting new commissions of Hull’s own ‘Fisherwomen’.
