Days That Made Us – Merchant Navy

My PocketsRogerStillDays that Made Us is a creative project that challenges people to chose and describe the one day of their life that made them who they are.

People from the Merchant Navy in Hull have worked with Peter Snelling from My Pockets to create audio recordings and photographs about their days.

From falling off a ship in shark infested waters, to being a child who buys a gun to shoot his violent father, to falling in love and never returning to sea again, the days are moving, funny and honest accounts of the moments that shape and change our lives.

My Pockets is an award winning film and arts company that works with people who have something to say and provides them with the tools to say it.

You can listen to their stories and view images from the project here.
