4 tags and 3 profiles in descriptionThe Shipping Forecast is a British institution. Broadcast four times a day on BBC Radio 4, it splits the waters of Western Europe into 31 sea areas encompassing the UK, from Dover to Southeast Iceland to German Bight. Beyond its practical and still-crucial use to mariners (indeed it can mean the difference between life and death for those at sea) it is also listened to by millions of people who tune in simply to hear the soft, measured cadences of the voices that present it day after day. . Today on magnumphotos.com, @marktpower reflects on his series, 'The Shipping Forecast', which was conceived in response to the esoteric language of the service. Link in bio. .

But a combination of the feeling of anticipation, and the belief that this would be the last time I would be pregnant, changed that for me. Suddenly, this period of waiting became the most important thing I could record." . Olivia Arthur reflects on the anticipation of the weeks leading up to the birth of her second daughter.
