Portrait of Mike – Volunteer Engineer at Hardley Mill, on the Southern Broads – photographed 2022.
Back in 2018. I started a personal portraiture project, documenting people living in Norfolk & North Suffolk, telling the story of them as individuals living on the East Coast.
I met so many inspiring and fascinating people. People who have lived in the area all their life or moved for work and those who settled here as migrants and who have impacted positively on the local area & economy.
I am still working on the project and always keen to hear from anyone who has a suggestion who may be happy to be involved, like Mike, who I shot recently while making a short film on the Mill.
The storytelling project aims to create a social history of the area and will eventually form a small photographic social history book.
The project was originally in part funded by Water, Mills & Marshes, the Broads Landscape Partnership scheme.
