Long Way Home: Brian Fallon's Liverpool Images


National Museums Liverpool have just released a podcast of photographer Brian Fallon giving a tour of his latest exhibition The Long Way Home.
Bernard Fallon was born into a large Liverpool Irish family in Crosby, Liverpool in 1949. He pursued his interest in painting and photography at the Liverpool College of Art for four years.
The Long Way Home covers the period between 1966 and 1975, when Fallon was exploring Liverpool and commuting to the Art School. He was fascinated by the changing urban landscape and social environment that he witnessed on his route and he began documenting life around Liverpool. His approach was inspired by the photojournalism and candid style of photographic masters such as Henri Cartier-Bresson.
