The project was started over three years ago. The ambition of the project was to record the changing environment of the North West England. Fiddlers Ferry is part two, of four parts, of this ambitious art project that has run from 2015 through to 2025. One decade of Art.
The photographer Lee Harrison was aware of the work that Shaun Smyth had began withthe Mersey Gateway Bridge 2015. That part of the project was completed towards the end of 2018 and exhibited at the Brindley Theatre Gallery. Lee Harrison, joined the creative team as photographer to add another dimension to the second part of the project. That was to be Fiddlers Ferry Power Station. Shaun, Lee and Denis ( who had been involved since 2019 as the editor for painters TUBES®) worked closely together to bring the first and the second part of the project to reality.
