A bridge between chapter one and chapter two of LOOK Photo Biennial 2019: this exhibition was first shown in China, at Pingyao Photography Festival. It will now be shown in Liverpool.
This show takes a unique approach to the depiction of Britain and its distinct landscapes, industries, social and economic changes, cultural traditions, traits and events as seen through the eyes of twelve of the most significant and impactful established and emerging photographers working in Britain over the last six decades.
The exhibition looks at the gentle, the humorous, the starkness, the beauty and the realities experienced and captured by the photographers around their lives living and working in Britain.
Artists: Martin Parr, Chris Killip, Marketa Luskacova, John Myers, Elaine Constantine, Tish Murtha archive, Daniel Meadows, Ken Grant, Robert Darch & Kirsty Mackay.
