Barbara Evripidou @ Canal & River Trust National Waterways Museum
24 July 2017 - 20 August 2017
The barge, Sabrina 5, was built in 1944 as part of the Ministry of War’s fleet. After a long career carrying cargo around the local waterways the 90ft long vessel came into the museum collection in 1988. Earlier this year Barbara Evripidou was invited to photograph Sabrina 5’s transformation into an education and visitor centre. Barbara’s black and white images of the stripped-back barge – with outer layers removed to reveal the structure – show the engineering behind the panels, and tell the story of her construction. Now Sabrina 5 has been rebuilt these elements are once again hidden, making Barbara’s photographs a unique record of a moment in time in the life of the barge.
