Reflections – Photographs of Liverpool
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any photographs of Liverpool, so I’ve put together a small collection of some of my favourites. I have made these availble for sale in the shop if you would like to take a closer look.
Other interesting art work in Liverpool, in its biennial, can also be found here.
Liverpool Pier Head
Crosby Beach, 11.30 ish? Sunday 20th May – beautiful. Quiet, warm, very gentle breeze. Just had to take my shoes off and walk along the water’s edge. Often call by to see how the Iron Men are doing (Antony Gormley’s Another Place) and it’s generally more interesting with strong clouds and weather. Today, however, was bright and hazy. Couldn’t see Wales at all. But lovely. A wonderful opportunity for some photography. Here are some shots.
When looking back at this photograph of my feet, I liked the play with light – is it coming from the right or left?
I liked the more abstract elements in the picture with the steps- strong diagonals contrasted with the softer, more flowing tones of the waves.
This image reminded me of Lowry and his silhouetted figures. Each figure seems to be in an isolated state. I loved the little boy pondering the water moving around him – it’s so calm you can’t even call them waves.
I wasn’t looking to focus on the Iron Men, but you can just see some of them emerging from the water in the distance.

A Passing Smile
“After weeks of traveling alone through Sri Lanka, I found myself on an old train high up in the Ceylon Mountains. This passing smile from a woman on another train encapsulated the unmistakable feeling of joy I had experienced during the previous weeks.”

Know The Not Known
I found this interesting short which is a combination of graffiti, advertising icons, interesting space and one poor bloke on a chair.
It is part of a campaign to create interest in Tiger Beer and involves a huge web of interactive incitements that will involve their target audience in engaging proactively within the campaign. It is a clever mix of treasure hunt and orienteering using all the digital paraphernalia we have available to us today and a wide range of creative fields. It harnesses digital, outdoor, magazines, media partnerships, PR, trade relations and events. And all turn their talents to directing the target audience to a FaceBook Hub page where their curiosity is rewarded with invites to underground, invite only, Tiger Beer events in pubs across London.
Has anyone been to any of these?
There are supposed to be special edition four pack out this year too for those who are not faint hearted:)
