Artwork of the Week – John Davies


Liverpool artwork of the week 44. West Tower photograph by John Davies for Cities on the Edge Photography Project. Exhibiting at Novas CUC 14 November – 18 December 2008

You’ve probably seen this picture already on all the publicity material but it really is a stunning image. It took me a while to realise it was Liverpool, a great example of how our waterfront has changed in recent years.

Curated by John Davies, The Cities on the Edge Photography Project invited 6 European photographers to make new work in Liverpool for 2008.

This is an unique initiative which is a collaboration between 6 port cities in 6 different European countries.
The project will result in an exhibition and publication highlighting Liverpool in relationship to Marseille, Naples, Gdansk, Bremen and Istanbul.

This exhibition coincides with the book ‘Cities On The Edge’ published by Liverpool University Press in November 2008. Edited by John Davies with introduction text by Franco Bianchini. 72 colour and B&W photographs from the six cities and text in all six languages. ISBN 9781846311864 £24.95 hb.
