Rebekah Tolley & Darryl Georgiou here on an #oegtakeover for the week, taking you through some of our images from 'The World Lived Here: L8', our project in Toxteth. The project is featured at Open Eye Gallery as part of Culture Shifts: Local, open until 22nd December. We aim towards a collaborative form of photography, socially engaged, process-led photo-image making, and constructed imagery that attempts to engage with the people represented in the work. Our images are concerned with the prevailing atmosphere of Liverpool L8. They respond to residents' thoughts, memories, family photographs and the streets of Granby/Toxteth today. Family photos and postcards became a recurring theme, as we talked to our collaborators. 'Picture Postcards' became a way for sharing ideas, thoughts and stories, or exchanging messages. Our first photo is a 'behind the scenes' image of Michael Pierce, one of our Granby participants, minus his cat 'Prince Parsley', who both feature in a photo-artwork on show at Open Eye. Michael, a relatively recent newcomer to Granby, has enthused us with his brilliant pop up cinema, Scalarama.
