Smith’s Dock Shipbuilders

This book details the final months of the last working shipyard on the river Tees at South Bank near Middlesbrough. Though predominantly a visual book its compelling text arises from taped interviews made by the artists from a wide selection of the workforce. Plans, maps and old photographs make up the rest of the body of the book.

The books ‘Smith’s Dock Shipbuilders’ and ‘Images of the Tees’ are both artists’ collaborations between photographer, Ian Macdonald and painter, Len Tabner.
