Product Overview

Published to coincide with an exhibition at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, "Women on the Waterfront" combines essays, first-person accounts, and stunning photographic images to tell the story of the twentieth-century women who worked, and continue to work, in and around the city' s waterfront-- or who abandoned urban life to earn a living at sea. At the heart of the project are Michelle Sank' s remarkable and vibrant portraits of the women she has photographed, alongside their own words-- alternately chillingly real in their gritty depictions of life on the waterfront and remarkably confident, vulnerable, and even otherworldly. Enhancing these already extraordinary stories is Joanne Lacey' s rich essay, " Journey to the Water' s Edge, " which examines the story behind this fascinating archive and its origins in Lacey' s own family history.
