Andrew Jackson - @andrewjacksonphotos - here on an #OEGtakeover for the week, taking you through some of my images from the 'Home is a Person' project in Toxteth. The work here is on show at Open Eye Gallery as part of Culture Shifts: Local, open until 22nd December.' To underline the collaborative, approach behind this commission, the focus, and indeed the people selected to be photographed, were directed by a local resident Michelle Peterkin Walker. In this photo we see local activist and elder, Flossy. He was instrumental in founding the local pirate radio station which gave people in the community a voice and access to their own culture at a time when local radio stations chose not to represent them. #CultureShifts #toxteth #portraits #culture #representation #blm #peopledoingsomething #pirateradio
