Mike McCartney's Liverpool Life

Open June 26, 2008 - September 21, 2008

Mike McCartney’s Liverpool Life features incredible black-and-white photographs documenting the origins of the British Invasion. “It’s the story behind the story, of that magical era,” said Mike McCartney. A self-taught photographer, McCartney perfected his art through years of practice and experimentation, using books from the local library for inspiration. His pictures include playful self-portraits of the artist experimenting with his first camera and intimate, informal scenes of family life in McCartney’s modest childhood home at 20 Forthlin Road.
