Published to coincide with an exhibition at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, "Women on the Waterfront" combines essays, first-person accounts, and stunning photographic images to tell the story of the twentieth-century 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 of the women she has photographed, alongside their own words--alternately chillingly real in their gritty depictions of life on the waterfront and remarkably confident, vulnerable, and even otherworldly. Enhancing these already extraordinary stories is Joanne Lacey's rich essay, "Journey to the Water's Edge," which examines the story behind this fascinating archive and its origins in Lacey's own family history.
