It’s hard to believe that I’ve now returned home after completing the first leg of The Lifeboat Station Project.
As those of you who’ve followed the journey will know, it was such an incredible fortnight filled with humility and generosity.
While visiting the first eight stations, the press seemed to be continually knocking at my door and it hasn’t stopped since my return — a factor that has been neatly fulfilling one of my aims for the Project, to raise awareness for the RNLI.
Whilst on my travels, I’m also gently on the lookout for really special scenes that are an aside to my normal schedule…
…scenes that aren’t specific to any one station but capture the humility of the RNLI volunteers that I mentioned; their camaraderie and generosity.
With that in mind — and to mark the launch of the Project — I’m releasing a limited edition of 50 prints from a plate made on Monday at Wells Lifeboat Station (above).
It’s a photograph I made with Allen Frary and Nicky King (1st and 2nd Coxswain respectively) as they were chatting in the late afternoon on the threshold of the station doors, their Mersey Class lifeboat looming overhead.
Made on gorgeous Hahnemühle Museum Etching 350gsm, the image area is printed exactly the same size as the original glass plate (10×12″) and laid out on 16×20″ paper.
Each print is numbered, signed and embossed.
The cost is £195 and includes delivery to your door within the next 7-10 days.*
