Come and enjoy our exhibition on the beach. After the phenomenal success of the ‘Tides’ exhibition for BPF16, the group members are delighted to showcase their latest project. Called ‘Port Life’, it highlights the working port of Shoreham-by-Sea, close to but distinct from Brighton & Hove. The photographs capture the diversity of life in the harbour basin, from the commercial operations and those who work in the port to the people enjoying the leisure and beach areas.
