Jungle Portraits

Isabela Jedrzejczyk

Portraits taken in 1980 from the Northumberland Arms on North Shields fish quay, also known as The Jungle, a pub that was a favourite haunt of Amber.

In 1979 Side Gallery, in conjunction with North Tyneside Metropolitan Council, funded a North Tyneside Survey, commissioning several photographers to develop a series of small exhibitions, while producing one historical show about the building of the Mauritania. As well as this project, Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen (Interiors), Graham Smith, Marketa Luskacova (Juvenile Jazz Bands) worked on projects. Jedrzejczyk also produced Urban Landscapes, while Luskacova and Konttinen also contributed work from their Photographs from the Beaches – Konttinen’s work later developing into Writing in the Sand.
