Photographer Paul Trevor only recently re-discovered his photos of 1970s-era Liverpool that were lying in a drawer for 35 years. The project was meant to document the deprivation in the rough inner city, but even so, the photos are very sweet, joyous and evocative, recalling an era of more innocence if you want to call it that, at least a very time than one filled with computers and predators and terrorists — all of which restrict children of today in different ways.
To hear more, Trevor talks about winning over the children of the city in a video at The Guardian.
“Like You’ve Never Been Away,” a show of his work is on at the Walker Art Gallery in London through September 25. He’s also trying to find the original subjects from the photos so he can photograph them again; look at his tear sheets here.
