Summer 2012 - early 2013
With the support of P&O Ferries, the Outlook exhibition tour was displayed on board the Pride of Hull and the Pride of Rotterdam untiil early 2013. The exhibition comprised of 22 images, and was divided into two; On board the pride of Hull the exhibition featured images with a more nautical theme, and on board the Pride of Rotterdam the exhibtiion featured some of the architecture and detail from the Old Town of Hull. If you travellled with P&O Ferries you may have seen Outlook, on display in the quiet rooms on each ship.
‘Down a quiet alleyway a beautiful red door reveals the
date of 1869; over a bustling street Neptune looks out
across a sea of shoppers; on a rare mulberry tree outside
Wilberforce House berries hang in the September sun…’
A selection of the mages taken from the Outlook collection, a photographic trail which takes you on a journey around Kingston upon Hull’s historic Old Town.
Outlook, created through NHS Hull for World Mental Health Day, encourages us to slow down, ‘Take Notice’ of our surroundings and appreciate the world around us.
‘Taking Notice’ is one of the ﬁve simple steps that have
been identiﬁed as helping us to improve mental wellbeing.
The Outlook exhibition tour began with an exhibiiton in the Street Life museum in Hull's Old town in March 2011. As part of the Outlook project and along side being exhibited, FREE history and photography tours of the city were on offfer. These informal, fun and relaxed these tours were a real hit with those who came along, including Fiona and Paul Schofield who co-ran them. A DVD of the walks was created and the project was used as the design for the 2012 NHS PCT Mental Health Annual Report.
Outllook is part of the NHS PCT Wellbeing programme to raise awareness on mental health and wellbeing. Contact

'One of the most inspirational projects I've had the pleasure of working on as a freelance photographer was the Wilberforce Women international grassroots photography project.
Meeting women from Sierra Leone, Iceland, Poland and the UK, and using photography to share our stories was inspirational, challenging and immensely rewarding. It gives me great pleasure to feature this video of Lee Karen Stow, founder of Women with Cameras International (formerly Wilberforce Women) receiving an honorary doctorate at Hull University on January 26th 2012.'

2011. www.theseafieldproject.co.uk was complete in 2011, the personal arts project I started in autumn 2010 took me in a very different direction to my usual freelance work. The routine of weekly documenting and collecting objects was at times not easy for someone who likes spontaneity and is very used to the haphazard routine of freelance work. The unusual and freezing conditions of last winter made for an interesting experience. Please visit the seafield website to find out more, feedback welcome.
