Footnotes

  • Hill and Adamson's Newhaven views and portraits were taken between 1843 and 1845 for The Fishermen and Women of the Firth of Forth, the first social-documentary photographic project. Their photographic essay, comprising approximately 130 images, sought to portray the self-sustaining and resourceful community of Newhaven in the midst of the grinding poverty felt amongst the working classes of Great Britain during the industrial revolution.
