Club Night Talk: The Lifeboat Station Project
Jack Lowe has loved lifeboats and photography since he was a boy. Now, after a successful photographic and printing career, he has embarked on an epic adventure that unites his two passions: The Lifeboat Station Project. Jack is travelling to all 238 RNLI lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland to photograph the brave volunteer crews. But this is not straight-forward photography. Jack works as the Victorians used to, capturing images on glass using a mobile darkroom — a decommissioned ambulance called ‘Neena’. With 100 lifeboat stations already behind him, Jack will reach the half-way point of his six-year odyssey this year. The Project has been featured in the national media, garnered a huge following online and will result in fund-raising books and exhibitions. But it hasn’t always been plain sailing. Come along and meet the man behind one of the biggest photographic projects ever undertaken — and find out what happens when you follow your heart.
