The Lifeboat Station Project

Photography has been in my blood since childhood when, aged 8, I received a Kodak Instamatic camera from my grandmother, a turning point from which I never looked back.

In adult life, The Lifeboat Station Project has become my epic mission to document all 238 RNLI lifeboat stations using photography, audio, film and writing.

And there’s a twist! I work as the Victorians used to, making the photographs on glass from my mobile darkroom, a decommissioned NHS ambulance called Neena.

To learn more, I invite you to watch the film made by Sean Tucker in 2022 (below) and visit the project’s dedicated website — the living archive of the journey that I’ve been making since January 2015:
