Where Are They Now?


The Long Way Home, an exhibition by celebrated photographer Bernard Fallon, is on display at the National Conservation Centre from 3 March until 15 July 2007. National Museums Liverpool would like to find the five cheeky characters that feature in the exhibition’s lead image.
The photograph was taken in 1969 and shows five young boys standing on the riverside of Scotland Road in Liverpool.

The Long Way Home is made up of 60 atmospheric black and white images taken between 1966 and 1974. They feature everyday Liverpool scenes, many of which Fallon took on his daily journey home from Liverpool to Crosby.
The evocative images document ordinary life in Liverpool with extraordinary detail.

They not only capture its people going about their daily business in variety of locations but they also depict domestic scenes with children at home and play. Bernard Fallon said; “I took these pictures as an amateur in the true sense of the word…I loved the sensation of events and scenes materializing in the view finder.
