Plymouth is a city defined by its relationship with the sea. So it stands to reason that its people might have a story or two to tell about it.
That is the essence behind Sea Portraits, a series of photographs and interviews with some of the fascinating people who, whether through work or play, have a deep connection with the sea in all its mystery and magnificence.
From the artist to the academic; the deep sea diver to the boatyard owner – these are some of the driving forces who in their own way are establishing Plymouth as the marine and maritime city for the UK.
Over time the Sea Portraits series has grown to encompass a kaleidoscope of characters, as different from one another as they are united by their passion for the blue environment.
What better time to showcase these Sea Portraits in Drake’s Place Gardens ‘Colonnade Gallery’ than during the city’s Ocean City Festival – we hope you will come and enjoy this exhibition in this lovingly restored community space on Plymouth University’s campus.
The exhibition is on from 11- 25 September.
We hope you'll come on that journey with us.
