Liverpool Central Library (ground floor), William Brown St.
1 October – 31 October 2009. (Last day ends at 13.00)
In aid of Leukaemia Research Fund.
Includes topics that depict the wonderful events from Liverpool’s Culture Year. Included are some events that have taken place in 2009. Liverpool’s Year Of The Environment made David want to highlight some of the Green and open spaces Liverpool and Merseyside has including beaches.
All money made from this exhibition will go towards Leukaemia Research.
I was treated at Whiston Hospital. This work is dedicated to everyone who looked after me on G5 my haematologist and her medical team.
My feelings towards the work etc
I wanted to follow on in the same vain as my previous exhibition “Let It Be Liverpool”, while adding different subject matters. The co-operation and care that has been given to me from people and organizers when at events and photographing the City has been second to none, but then what do you expect from the people of Liverpool.
I nearly froze to death on the night of the Transition Ceremony, while people stopped and stared when I lit up the Chinese Arch and Wellington’s Column, they are just a few of the images taken plus a few surprises from when I have photographed events, it will be more than just 53 presentations there will also be a diary and brief in a blue folder where I have expressed my feelings towards the work and added images that were very difficult not to mount. I enjoyed the opening day of The Exhibition, I have enjoyed taking the pictures, but what I means more to me than anything is that these pictures were taken in Liverpool and I can use them to raise money and awareness for Leukaemia Research. Please come along and enjoy Liverpool And Beyond.
