The Water's Edge

The Water's Edge Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 citys waterfront—or who abandoned urban life to earn a living at sea. At the heart of the project are Michelle Sanks 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 Laceys rich essay, “Journey to the Waters Edge,” which examines the story behind this fascinating archive and its origins in Laceys own family history.

About the Author

Joanne Lacey is director of JEL Research and has over fifteen years of combined experience in academic and commercial policy studies. Michelle Sank is a photographer whose work has been exhibited widely throughout the United Kingdom.
