Artist Talks: Imaging Liverpool
In this series of illustrated talks, selected artists from Centre of the Creative Universe: Liverpool and the Avant-Garde discuss their particular photographic and filmic representations of Liverpool in the exhibition and reflect on their oeuvre as a whole.
Monday April 23
Vanley Burke will discuss his black and white photographs of Liverpool city centre and outskirts. Born in Jamaica in 1951, Burke moved to Birmingham in 1965 and started photographing daily life in the community around him with a camera given to him by his grandmother for his 10th birthday. The artist visited Liverpool in the 1980s, documenting the daily life of communities from Toxteth and other parts of Liverpool in a similar fashion. For over 30 years, Burke has single-mindedly followed his self appointed task of documenting the life of the black community in Britain, and continues this type of work today.
