The excitement that people feel when going somewhere or heading
home is what Stockwell strives to portray in photographing things that
Stockwell grew up in England watching boats on the Thames. In the
60s, he worked at the London docks and became inspired to travel,
by seeing all the boats that came from foreign and exotic
places. Some of his most memorable journeys were by train;
Malaysia to Thailand, the Transvaal, or by plane; flying on
one of the first 707s from London to Australia. When he see
some of these vehicles, he sees his past; He sees history and a
way of life that is being left behind.
