Exploring and developing skills in photography, writing and storytelling

1978-80, now, in-between, underneath, forging ahead, falling through


The photographs you can see on this website were taken in Liverpool between 1978 and 1980.

Ian walked from his nan’s house in Toxteth, into the city centre and docks, repeatedly, taking photographs on his battered Nikon camera along the way:
