Description

Photograph by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe (1853-1941). On her head she carries a woven tray laden with the 'long-line' fishing equipment and mussels which were used as bait. She stands at the edge of the sea with the lighthouses and piers in the distance behind her. Sutcliffe is best known for his naturalistic and spontaneous style of photography, especially his portrayals of Whitby's fishing community. He was a founder member of The Linked Ring Brotherhood and was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 1941.
