THE BIG ISSUE
At sea, on shore
Gracia Haby & Louise Jennison
Collages created for The Big Issue magazine
No 422, 26th December, 2012 – 10th January, 2013
Two collaborative collages created especially for The Big Issue’s Summer Edition to describe the feel of the words of author Laura Jean McKay’s piece, All at Sea. This is the fourth collage we have had the pleasure of working on for the magazine.
As a passenger on a cargo ship you experience the collision of two very different worlds —the tourist's world and that of the working sailor. One longs for adventure and the other, in the most adventurous of occupations, longs for home.
(Laura Jean McKay, All at Sea, The Big Issue, Summer Edition 2012 – 2013, pages 14–17)
