Wreck show in Stockport

An exhibition at Stockport Art Gallery & War Memorial in Greater Manchester commemorating the centenary of World War One is set to feature a combination of shipwreck photographs and paintings inspired by them.

Beneath the Waves is a collaboration between diver Paul Webster, who will be exhibiting his black-and-white underwater photography, and local artist Henry Quick, who has produced mixed-media work inspired by Webster’s work.

The subjects are wrecks of Allied and German warships and merchant vessels that sank during, or participated in, WW1 around the British Isles, illustrating their state of preservation after a century submerged.

The exhibition runs from 8 April to 14 May at the gallery in Wellington Road South, Stockport.

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
