… Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert photographed

showing the scale of the industry at that time …

… my favourite pieces were the two  moving videos
of the whole scale destruction of the shipyards in Gdansk
with the just the sounds of the bulldozers
and

rather than treated with the respect and love with which they built them

… but all is not well in Alang …
