This is Sunderland is a longterm ongoing project which aims to document the ever-changing industrial and historic landscape of Wearside. All images are taken on film using vintage camera equipment, in keeping with the locations and subjects.

Despite this website originally being launched in 2009, it is still a project in it's infancy - many areas of the City are still unphotographed. Regardless, what you see here is only a small selection culled from around 5000 images - choosing photos for this website was a difficult job.

I am always keen to hear from people who can assist in arranging access to locations and buildings which are of local interest - if you are able to help out then please get in touch.
