If you are living in Liverpool, you are sure to know that there are many weird and wonderful things to experience while you have some free time.

Review: Some people V. Reginald D. Hunter

Last Thursday, Reginald D. Hunter delivered a preview of his new tour: ‘Some People V. Reginald D. Hunter’, at the Epstein Theatre.

Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 2015 Exhibition – Review

This week Liverpool’s Open Eye Gallery launched its Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 2015 exhibition, presenting the work of three award winning photographers: Joanna Piotrowska, Tereza Zelenkova and Mathew Finn. The exhibition is certainly an interesting one, featuring works from each of the three artists and their respective projects that both compliment and contrast each other. While the ideas and inspiration behind the photography of each individual is very different, stylistically, all of the photographer’s pieces are quite similar in nature. Joanna Piotrowska’s pieces focus on the effects of the social space on the individual. Her displayed project consists of a range of unusual...
