    A look around the corner

    "The exhibition is the story so far of a social documentary photograhic essay about the Everton area and the residents who live there and the challenges they face living in one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Britain. My aim is to widen debate through the photographs. I don't see the photographs as art but rather as a way of providing alternative views of the city from a perspective that is all too often buried away. Photography gives the photographer (and then the viewer) a licence to slow down the eye and take a look 'around the corner' of the official version of the city, this way photographs can be used to begin to question all the versions of history, sociology and so on we are given."
