    Alec Gill, 75, has been taking pictures of Hull's Hessle Road area since he first trained his camera lens on the city's St. Andrews fish dock in 1971.

    He describes himself as "tourist in his own town" and an "unwitting" chronicler of the local fishing industry's decline, which he has recorded in 6,630 images of the area and its people over the decades.

    The photographer, who was born in Hull's Old Town, had several spells of work in the shipping and forwarding industry in the 1960s but did not like office life and often took to travelling and taking photographs.

    The Alec Gill's Hessle Road archive campaign is to be launched on Tuesday.
