Colin says, “ My talk is titled The Streets of Liverpool,
after my blog about photography and Liverpool.
I started the blog in 2010 to create an interest in the way photographs can be interpreted and understood in a local context. It was a continuation of my interest and involvement in photography from founding Open Eye Gallery in 1977 through to my more recent career as a leading photography book publisher at Bluecoat Press.
My talk will bring these elements together with a particular emphasis on the early years of photography in Liverpool and my mission to fill in the ‘missing’ decades from 1840 to 1870.”
