Jack Lowe — a photographer based in Newcastle upon Tyne — has been a lifelong enthusiast and supporter of the RNLI, joining Storm Force at the age of 8 and raising over £6,000 for the charity by completing the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Great North Runs.
Photography has also been in Jack’s blood since he was a young boy. Aged 9, he received a Kodak Instamatic camera from his grandmother, a turning point from which he’s never looked back.
Nowadays, travelling in his mobile darkroom (a decommissioned NHS ambulance), Jack uses an ancient process to make photographs on glass and metal as the Victorians used to between the 1850s and 1880s.
In creating The Lifeboat Station Project, Jack is bringing together his love of photography, the sea and the RNLI to produce a stunning, unprecedented body of work.Read more
