Port of Culture is a showcase of images from a three-year photographic project undertaken by Peter Carr which sought to capture the city of Liverpool in an alternative light. A specialist in High-Dynamic Range photography, Carr uses a technique which enables photographers to record a broader range of tonal detail—ultimately producing a painterly quality to the image. The end results are the incredibly dynamic images included in this collection, each one capturing one of the many moods of the city—from scenes of protest to the opaque and glassy waterfront to local architecture, old and new. A visually stunning volume, Port of Culture reveals the astonishing creativity of this young photographer—whose work is exhibited in more than sixty images—providing a wholly refreshing take on a city evolving before our eyes.
