Liverpool Biennial 2014 photography

Published on Fri Jul 4, 2014 by

I was lucky enough to visit the press preview of the Liverpool Biennial yesterday and saw some really interesting pieces of art work and installations. It really has become an important date and event in the world's contemporary art calendar. Loads of visitors from the city and a wide and interesting selection of artists and their work on show.

The event's hub is in the Old Blind School. The building has had interesting uses in the past, from being the Merseyside Police Headquarters, through to a Trades Union centre. I had some work in part of it at the end of last year as part of the Hidden Places show and also I blogged about a load of graffiti I found there on my Liverpool Photographer Tumblr.

The 8th edition of the Liverpool Biennial launches for the first time in the summer. It is the largest international contemporary art festival in the United Kingdom. For ten weeks, every two years, the city of Liverpool hosts an extensive range of artworks, projects, and a programme of events. The Biennial is a platform for research, commissioning and presenting international art, education and debate. It takes place from 5 July to 26 October 2014.

Below are a few images. If you are displaying work and want some great photography to document it, or press after images for a publication or website - please don't hesitate to get in touch.

RIP Frederick "Toots" Hibbert - Liverpool 2011

Sad to hear Jamaican reggae pioneer Frederick Nathaniel "Toots" Hibbert has died at the age of 77. The legendary musician fronted the reggae and ska band Toots & the Maytals from the early 1960s. Read more...

"If you are looking for a creative and reliable event photographer, David is your guy. I commissioned him to travel to London to cover a business event where we were exhibiting and to also capture some staff portraits of the exec management team. His fees were competitive and his attitude totally positive & fun. David is an excellent photographic supplier. I highly recommend his services."
