Our company’s story began with Donald Innes and his photography studio, which he opened in Hessle in 1947. Our gallery showroom is in that same building alongside the Innes Photographers studios. Donald spent his early career as a photojournalist and by the mid 1950’s he headed up one of the most successful freelance photographic press agencies in the North of England.
Each of his pictures documented everyday life in Hull and the surrounding area, providing a unique insight in to people’s lives during the 50’s and 60’s. Innes are incredibly proud to have been asked to provide images from the The Donald Innes Heritage Collection to feature as part of the amazing projected art installation, Made in Hull.
The Heritage collection of images are also available to purchase from our gallery and website having been lovingly restored and brought back to life on beautiful archive quality fine art paper by Donald’s son Ivor and the team at Innes. Images include old sporting shots of Hull City Football Club and Hull Speedway, as well as what was Hull’s booming fishing industry, with delightful shots of fish being landed from trawlers at Hull’s docks.
