Following the fisherwomen

Multi-award winning documentary photographer Craig Easton tells us about his latest social documentary photography projects ‘Fisherwomen’ and ‘Bank Top’.

Craig Easton started off as a press photographer for the Independent in the early 1980s but it was his desire to tell longer-form stories that led him to documentary work. He’s worked extensively around the British coast for the last 25 years or so and has won two TPOTY awards with the resulting images.

In 2012 Craig Easton scooped the title of Travel Photographer of the Year with portfolios which included photos made in Skye, the Outer Hebrides and Paris and in 2016 he won the Land, Sea, Sky category with a series of shots taken near his home on the Wirral peninsula in northwest England.
