Back in the Day: Vol. 1 - Liverpool 8 Social History 1984-89

by Leroy Cooper - £20.00  Capstone Media Company Publishing (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781527236967 | ISBN 10: 152723696x

Leroy Cooper understands the power of art to transform energy. Through street art, poetry, photography, painting and music, Leroy's personal experience has become his legacy.
 
Following his arrest in Liverpool 8 in 1981, his name has been inextricably linked with the Toxteth riots, an ironic infamy considering his lack of involvement. He wasn't there. He made a conscious decision to channel this negative experience into something positive.
 
This book is a rate and fascinating selection from over 200,000 photographs of Liverpool community taken between 1981 and 2018. The photographs are poignant and captivating. Leroy's empathy is reflected in the candour of the shots.
 
44 pages, with a Foreword by Bryan Biggs.
