Photographer's Note

I recently visited Lindisfarne, or Holy Island as it is also known, just off the coast of Northumberland. It was a place that I had always wanted to go largely because of the name of the band Lindisfarne!

Amongst other things, Lindisfarne is famed for fishermen using redundant herring boats as storage sheds for their nets and other equipment. As the fishing industry has changed and evolved over the years Holy Island is one of the few places where these boat sheds remain.

The upturned boats are covered in tar for waterproofing and seem to be in the usual state of decay that generally surrounds huts and buildings close to the sea. This along with the curvy shape results in buildings that have great presence and character. The collection of boat sheds around the harbour is an unusual and extremely photogenic location, one that I hope to return to.
