project proposal

Context:

“Near the King Harry Ferry just south of Truro, you suddenly glimpse the giant ships – car carriers, bulk carriers, banana boats…there are Filipinos, Polish, Portugese, Russian, Ukranian and Bulgarian sailors with little access to the outside world.”
Guardian Newspaper, 31/01/09
