Once again we are grateful to Culture Vannin, and Port Erin Commissioners, and new supporters Port Erin Traders/Visit Port Erin and Chrystals who financed the project. Port Erin Commissioners said: “we were delighted to be part of the project capturing the village’s businesses ten years on. It has been fantastic to see many new businesses having established themselves in Port Erin alongside other amazing local businesses which have been trading within Port Erin for many years prior to the initial project in 2012”.
Fieldwork took place at the beginning of August 2022.

In most cases I photographed different people to represent the businesses to those in 2012. But for over 20% of all organisations I had the privilege to photograph the same people, much more than in other towns. Special thanks go to those brave people who agreed to be photographed for a second time.
For the majority of businesses and organisations, it was the same business in the same location, with the same or similar business activity over the ten year period, although in most cases new people were photographed.
