Global Fish Stock Crisis

Monday, October 29th, 2007

Relentless over fishing for decades has caused a crisis in global fish stocks. A variety of responses are being tried including; mothballing entire fishing fleets, increased aquaculture, fishing at greater depths and teaching consumers to eat previously untried species of fish.

Further information on the crisis, which has been unfolding for years, can be found on these links:

Basically there are too many humans and we consume too damn much of everything – what to do?

Bologna

These images are from a book and exhibition produced in 1984. I was invited by the city council, as part of a sequence of visiting artists, to photograph the city. The resulting book ‘Sam Haskins a Bologna’ is still occasionally available on auction and rare book sites.
