Newlyn Harbour Gallery:
When metal prices fell Cornish Miners no longer working underground turned to fishing to feed their families. When the price of Tin and Copper rose they would again seek underground employment. The images on this page were taken around Newlyn Harbour which is the home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the UK.
I spent a day wandering around taking photographs with some reasonable results, these images date from 2009.
