"I moved to Humberside in 2002, and regularly travel across the region, camera in hand. The area has a rich past, with the picturesque Humber Estuary providing the dividing line between Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire. The area has some of the most stark social contrasts in the country, with many ancient market towns situated within a few miles of some of the most deprived areas in England. However, throughout my exploration of Humberside I've been struck by the friendliness, spirit and generosity of people from all areas of society."
