In 2012 the Everyman in Liverpool invited people to take part in a photography project to create a Portrait Wall on the front of the new building. Designed by architect Steve Tompkins, this large-scale artwork is a powerful expression of the fact that the Everyman is and always will be for everyone. Photo sessions were held at venues across the city and many hundreds came along to take part. See the video below for more.
Born in 1951, Tom Wood has spent much of the last four decades photographing the daily life of the people of Merseyside. Regularly walking the streets of Liverpool, and seldom without his camera, Wood continuously recorded the people he encountered with a rare and empathic insight into human nature.
Tom Wood: Photographs 1973 – 2013 is the first major solo exhibition of his work in the UK and is a collaboration with The Photographers’ Gallery, London.
