Going to the Sand | 9 April – 3 July 2022 | Lancaster Maritime Museum

For over 25 years, Tessa Bunney has photographed rural life, working closely with individuals and communities to investigate how the landscape is shaped by humans; and vice versa. From hill farmers near her home in North Yorkshire to Icelandic puffin hunters, from Finnish ice swimmers to Romanian nomadic shepherds her projects reveal the fascinating intricacies of the dependencies between people, work, and the land.

Lancaster Maritime Museum is proud to present Tessa’s new exhibition Going to the Sand.

9 April – 3 July 2022

This incredible photographic and social commentary of Morecambe Bay’s inshore fishing families shows life in the margins between land and sea. Tessa uncovers an un-changed existence that now depends upon an ever-changing and fragile ecosystem, and an even more changing and challenging political environment.
