Northumbria, 2017: Unity and Madonna, Seahouses [fishing heritage, nature tourism, diving]
This print is in three layers on Somerset Satin White paper, and is one of a set of prints depicting 21st century Northumbria, inspired by hand-coloured photographs in the 1898 book Japan.
Seahouses started to diversify from a fishing village to a tourist destination in the early 19th century, especially after the story of Grace and William Darling’s rescue of people from the shipwrecked SS Forfarshire on 7th September 1838 spread nationally and internationally. Seahouses was and still is the main port for travelling to the Farne Islands where the Darlings lived and which remain rich in marine wildlife.
