Published to coincide with an exhibition at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, The Water’s Edge combines essays, first-person accounts, and stunning photographic images to tell the story of the women who worked, and continue to work, in and around the city’s waterfront, or who abandoned urban life to earn a living at sea. At the heart of the project are Michelle Sank’s remarkable and vibrant portraits, alongside the women's own stories - alternately confident, vulnerable, even otherworldly. Joanne Lacey’s introduction reveals the background to this fascinating project and its origins in her own family history. Roy Exley's Afterword also offers some reflections on Michelle Sank's striking photographic practice.
