Old Boats at Emsworth
Boat Photography Showcase. Boatbreakers are always looking to spread the word around the issue of boat disposal. We feel that a perfect way to do this is to get as many people aware of the problem as possible. A great way to do this is through Art and Photography. Therefore we want to engage with artist and photographers who are using boats or recycled boats as their inspiration.
At the end of 2019 we wanted to get more Artists and Photographers involved in what we do. We think that old and abandoned boats are great inspiration for art. Whether it’s the boats themselves or creating art out of pieces of boat.
Local photographer, Chris Leighton, got in contact and wanted to contribute. Chris regularly walks around the Emsworth area which is a beautiful part of Chichester Harbour. However she had noticed how a number of boats had become an eyesore. We discussed how these boats would be perfect content for our website as it helps to highlight the growing issue of abandoned boats.
Chris explained, “I was a press photographer years ago and since moving from Norfolk to Hampshire I have only shot for pleasure. I have a Flickr account but most of my images rarely see the light of day, which is why I was drawn to your advert.
“I am not sure that I have many of derelict boats but living in Emsworth I am surrounded by them and this will give me a project and something to do when I go for my walks.”
If you are a Photographer or Artist and have boat related pictures you would like featured, get in contact! You can email, Tweet, Facebook or Instagram us. Furthermore the same can be said for writers. If you have an opinion piece on the issue of boat disposal we’d also be happy to feature you in our blog.
