The Working River project has documented stories of working lives in London’s Boatyards over the past 60 years, on the tidal Thames. Including the significant history of barge and boat building at Brentford Docks, and at Lots Ait, as well as yards from Toughs in Teddington, to Cory Environmental in Charlton, the project has recorded oral histories with key figures in London’s Boatyards, and the changes that have occurred over this time.

This exhibition highlights the photography of Hydar Dewachi, who was commissioned to document and respond to the working boatyards today. His photography and portraits hang alongside a documentary film about the boatyards, produced by Digital:Works, which will available to watch throughout the exhibition.
