Photographer Shirley Baker has been commissioned by the Lowry to revisit the streets and spaces of Salford and Manchester that she famously photographed in the late 1960s and early 1970s. At that time she recorded, with powerful and memorable images, communities that were involved in transformations. Set against the desolation created more effectively by bulldozers than it could have been by bombing raids, people are setting about their everyday street activities: playing, chatting, shopping. But many of the streets are no longer there: the odd isolated building stands as a reminder of the disappearing street, and often, in the background, are the tower blocks that are such a questionable legacy from the period. Shirley's keen eye has now recorded those urban spaces and activities as they are now, and the contrasts are striking, yet so too is the continuity. The work will be exhibited at the Lowry in September, and this beautifully produced book will be published to coincide with that event.
