FACES OF 30 CITY SEA­MEN GO ON SHOW

POR­TRAITS OF HULL’S HARDI­EST SEA­FAR­ERS HAVE GONE ON DIS­PLAY. DAN KEMP RE­PORTS

Hull Daily Mail - - NEWS -

Thirty in­cred­i­ble por­traits of some of Hull’s hardi­est sea­far­ers have gone on dis­play at the city’s Mar­itime Mu­seum. The pic­tures by artist Dan Lly­we­lyn Hall are part of the Por­traits At Sea ex­hi­bi­tion that is run­ning at the venue un­til De­cem­ber 22.

The 30 head­shots are the fi­nal wave of por­traits that de­pict mem­bers of Hull’s Mer­chant Navy.

The draw­ings were done dur­ing the City of Cul­ture year and share the faces of both fish­er­men and mer­chant sea­men who call the city home.

The sit­tings were done to show the chang­ing face of the in­dus­try as jobs al­tered in re­sponse to chal­leng­ing times faced by the mar­itime com­mu­nity.

Speak­ing about his ex­hi­bi­tion, Mr Lly­we­lyn Hall said: “I was in­vited to meet the men of Hull’s sea­far­ing past, when the ports were bustling with fish­er­men and the Mer­chant Navy.

“I dis­cov­ered some truly re­silient and en­gag­ing men who were full of sto­ries with rich characters forged by time at sea. This col­lec­tion serves as a tes­ta­ment to these men, their gen­eros­ity of spirit as ships pass at night.”
