‘Below the Wrackline’ Exhibition
January 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm GMT
Thames21 teamed up with professional photographer Jack Delmonte to use the creativity of photography and the power of images to deepen understanding of flooding and enrich community networks.
‘Below the Wrackline’ explores the experience of Canvey Island as a wetland environment from the perspective of three residents. Lesley, Beverly and Liam produced over 360 photographs through a series of community participation photography workshops held at the Yellow Door youth hub. In this exhibition, you can see twenty that have been selected and curated by the group to best represent life ‘below the wrack line.’
The workshops and exhibition form part of the Thames21 Building Resilience in Communities (BRIC) project.
Wrackline. Noun. The line of debris left on the beach by high tide. The wrack is usually made up of eel grass, kelp, crustacean shells, feathers, bits of plastic, and all kinds of litter. Canvey Island sits below high tide sea level – below the wrackline – making it vulnerable to flooding but also producing a unique and intriguing environment.
