Inscribed on verso in graphite: "'The Shipping Forecast' took four years to complete. | This picture was taken during that first, long | summer of 1993, which was spent moving slowly | along the north coast of Britain. More specifically, | it's taken on the 5am ferry from Stornoway, or | the outer Hebridean island of Lewis, to Ullapool, | on the Scottish mainland. Jo and I had spent the | previous night in our campervan on the quayside. | We hadn't needed an alarm; the racket made by | the trucks boarding the ship was enough. | I was the only one on deck to watch the heavy fog | lift to reveal other islands along the way. It was | hauntingly beautiful, and especially so after the | [...] violance of Stornoway, which we were | gladly leaving behind."; lower left: "This print was made to raise funds for | student / alumni books to celebrate 21 years | of photography at the U.O.B. 2013 - "; lower center: "13/15"
