Spotted Pete Carr’s excellent book of photographs in a few places lately, including Waterstones and the shop in the Walker Art Gallery.
You can also buy it online of course.
Port of Culture is a showcase of the images from a three year photographic project undertaken by photographer Pete Carr to capture the city of Liverpool in a different light. Award-winning photographer Carr is a specialist in HDR (High Dynamic Range) a technique that enables photographers to record a greater range of tonal detail than any camera could capture in a single photo, producing a ‘painting-like’ quality to the image. The end result is an incredible dynamic range of images capturing the many moods of the city, from scenes of protests at the arrival of Condoleezza Rice, to local architecture old and new. Visually stunning, Port of Culture reveals the astonishing creativity of this young photographer while providing a wholly refreshing and entrancing take on a city evolving in front of our eyes.
