Jack Lowe's lifeboat station project
« on: June 02, 2017, 01:24:22 PM »
Strictly speaking, Jack Lowe is a "glasswaster", but I hope you'll forgive me for posting this once you've seen his stunning work.

Some of you may be aware of this project, as it's had a degree of media coverage, as Jack visits all of the UK's 238 RNLI stations.
Take a look at the website, follow the journey and maybe support in some small way.

I spotted his work last year.  I think he is doing a fantastic job.

It's fantastic stuff, and if I could afford some of his prints I'd buy them. There's something about these pictures which at a quick glance look old until you realise the modern equipment is there. It's a great project and nothing but respect for the RNLI.

I thought that now would be a good time to give this a little bump, with the news that Jack has now visited / photographed the 100th station on his epic project.
