In June 2017 Karen Shepherdson and Rob Ball were commissioned to make photographic portraits as part of Cliftonville’s Walpole Bay Tidal Pool’s 80th anniversary celebrations. These photographs contribute to both Ball and Shepherdson’s practice-based research, which considers how diverse coastal communities make use of democratic seaside spaces and how the medium of photography can contribute to innovative, positive (re)presention, (re)interpretation and (re)evaluation of previously disregarded coastal sites.

Between the Tides: Walpole Bay Tidal Pool at 80 provides an evening of gathering, exhibition, film screenings and presentations. Throughout 2017 filmmakers and photographers have been engaging with the coastal communities who use this extraordinary place and space and this free event provides an opportunity to share their work and reflections.
