Liverpool’s Boss!

Personal Project

Since being designated European Capital of Culture in 2008, the landscape and vibe of the city of Liverpool has been going through a dramatic regeneration. Once notorious for striking dockers, violent street riots and unemployment, Liverpool is now recognised as a hub of art, culture and commerce, attracting visitors from around the world.

As a photographer I find myself drawn towards the boundary of the regeneration, where overhead cranes tower over every block. There I can observe the places and people who are part of the gradual synthesis taking place between the old and new.

The project was originally intended to be a one-off, but since beginning it in 2016 I have continued to observe and photograph the ongoing change that continues to sweep the city at a relentless pace, making this an ongoing project.
