Images of Forton Lake Wrecks – by Daniel Karmy (Event from 2016)
Show / Display
The Jervis Gallery, St Vincent College Campus, Mill Lane, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 4QA
Forton Lake is home to around thirty wrecked vessels of varying type, the majority of which arrived at the lake in the twentieth century. The Forton Lake Archaeology Project, organised by the Nautical Archaeology Society and Hampshire and Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology, was a project which involved local residents in attempting to uncover the heritage which had yet lain undiscovered at the lake.
As part of this, one local resident and promising young photographer named Daniel Karmy, undertook a detailed visual survey of the lake from 2007 to 2009, compiling a 2,700-strong archive of photographs of the wrecks. For Heritage Open Days Daniel shows the best of his Forton Lake photographs, projected large for all to enjoy. Daniel will be there to answer any questions visitors may have about the wrecks.
