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 resisent Michelle Peterkin Walker. In this photo we see Michelle's mother Vicky. Born in Jamaica, Vicky came to the very different world of Liverpool, when she was 9 years old. She talked with me about her life, about growing up in Liverpool and the racism that she had experienced over the yesrs - and still continues to experience - in the city, and she talked too about her love for Liverpool FC. #CultureShifts #toxteth #portraits #culture #representation #blm #liverpoolfc #racism #football #film
