Estuary is a photographic essay of the Humber and the challenges it faces. The beauty of the big skies, the ever changing light and the fluidity of water is a constant. However climate change, brought about in part by some of the key industries on this huge estuary, is threatening the environment and the human and wild life that are a part of it. The race is on to make changes and this photographic essay seeks to show the beauty and challenges the Humber faces.
Opening is on Saturday 14th January. Nigel will be in the gallery between 10:30am and 12:30pm for a short, informal introduction to the work.
The exhibition will take place at the Ropewalk Gallery.
