WHILE YOU SLEEP
This project has developed over the last six months. By visiting Billingsgate market many times, I have got to know a group of fishmongers and learned a little about their lives. I have spent entire days at the market watching them at work, mostly through the night. Returning there most nights, I have experienced the contrast between the silence of the night outside and the restless activity inside the market. These men generally start their shifts just after midnight (when most of us are sleeping) and work right through the until 10 o'clock in the morning. I wanted to show the fishmongers' world, their way of life, their labours and their emotions.
