A Documentary Photographer and Photography and Media teacher, living and working in Lincolnshire and the surrounding area, is urging people to take part in an ongoing project to document the importance of Hull as a major fishing port.
Since graduating from the University of Wales; Newport's Documentary Photography course Tobias Beach-Wyld, has explored communities undergoing change and the British way of life. Currently undertaking his MA in Photography though the University of Falmouth, Tobias originally chose to photograph Hull’s fishing industry, as a way of documenting his local community and the history which is little known beyond the city.
Tobias said: “While working on this project I came to realise how important it is to document Hull’s history as a major fishing port and record the stories of the men and women who worked in this industry before they are lost to the march of time.
“I have learnt about a way of life I never really knew existed and have been welcomed into the homes of the community and found that Hessle road is still a vibrant community but sadly missing an industry that brought them together.”
