Fishing for Generations

When I first came down to Hastings from London in 1991 to photograph the fishing community, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, says photographer John Cole. I wandered along the Stade asking fishermen if I could take their photos and, although many said yes, attempts at further conversation were generally futile. But I persisted and eventually won the trust of the men and women working in what is proportionally the UK’s second most dangerous profession.
