photo of the week: an eye for detail

Posted by carlotta on Friday February 19th, 2016 at 7:59am

This week’s photo comes from Newhaven’s Robinson Road Studio. I came upon this world-renowned cabinet and furniture-maker on a back road in Newhaven while looking to photograph a local boatbuilder. I missed my chance to capture the boatbuilders, as they have already sold up to a developer. Luckily I found Marc Fish’s business across the road. Alongside his own hugely successful furniture-making, Marc takes on a small number of students each year. He also rents workbench space to those starting out in the business.

It turns out that Marc’s business might be driven out by developers as well. His council-owned building has been on a list to be demolished and made into housing in the next 18 months. It seems short-sighted to uproot successful creative industries such as this one from their bases in Newhaven, where employment is needed alongside new housing in order for real regeneration to take place. More photographs from this shoot can be found here.
