A hive of activity

This personal favourite of mine, shot a couple of years ago, is from my project photographing the Marine and Carpenter’s workshops in Newhaven as they became the new UTC@harbourside. It shows the new cafeteria in the later stages of the build. There is something about this photograph that amuses me – the bustle and activity that seems almost posed. It really wasn’t, I promise.

A print of this photo will be going on display at the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust along with ten other prints from this series. The exhibition is part of an event that celebrates the partnership between the Trust and HKS, the architects who designed the transformation of the two derelict Victorian warehouses into an inspiring new engineering college for 15 to 18-year-olds. All photographs from this project can be found here.
