Llandudno lifeboat crew delighted to join Jack Lowe's 'Lifeboat Station Project'

Lifeboats News Release

The station welcomed photographer Jack Lowe to be part of his stunning project. He plans to visit all 238 RNLI lifeboat stations, photographing the breath-taking views from each station along with the crew members.

Jack will be using Wet Plate Collodion, a Victorian process that allows him to record stunning images on glass.

Jack says: ‘I’ve been looking forward to bringing The Lifeboat Station Project back to Wales for a long time. It’ll be great to experience the warm Welsh welcome once again and to add to the growing collection of photographs documenting the RNLI volunteers in this stunning part of the world.'

Volunteer Deputy Launch Authority, Alun Pari Huws, said 'The whole crew at Llandudno felt privileged to be part of this historic project and those able to see the development process found it fascinating. The photograph of the lifeboats and crew will have pride of place at the station in due course.'
