The photography site for sore eyes. With extra writing because I'm also a writer.
If you visited Liverpool a decade ago you probably would not recognise much of the city today. Part of its rejuvenation has come through the installation of a long-running cultural programme.
The highlight of this initiative was the European City of Culture year in 2008 – but that was just one strand of arts events that have taken place in the city.
And Look2011 is part of this aim to keep Liverpool at the forefront of the art and culture in Britain. Certainly in the northwest, think arts, think Liverpool. To that end the aim has succeeded, where Liverpool is streets ahead of traditional rivals Manchester.
For my own project I hope to follow some locals for a few days, documenting their lives from work and home to weekend partying – the lifestyles for which Scouse women are famous for.
First, of course, I need to find three or four women willing to be photographed as they enjoy themselves in the city of culture.
Look 2011 runs from May 13 to June 26, though many of the major exhibitions run for longer.
