Part of The Venetian Waterways Photo Project. Kelvin is a bespoke carpenter has been commissioned to restore the wooden animal heads that were once attached to boats. People could take a trip on them at the waterways. They will be displayed on once of the islands at the site soon. Note see image of postcard June 2019.
I have been working on The Venetian Waterways Project since last September 2018. It started as a personal photography project as a place I use to visit with my family, when I was a toddler to a teenager. My mum used to take my brother and I to The Waterways on a sunny day and we would sit and have a picnic and watch the boats and tourists go by. This project has evolved into a larger body of work which captures the regeneration of the Boating lake and Waterways over a period of year, which will be a shown as an animated series from beginning to completion. The postcard series was inspired by my Dad who was a collector of postcards of Gt Yarmouth and the surrounding areas of Norfolk. The Postcard series will be exhibited in the Ex- Marks and Spencers shop in Gt Yarmouth in the next month or so. There are also plans to exhibit at the Skipping’s Gallery, Gt Yarmouth and possibly project the images onto the water at The Waterways at night.
