John Fogarty

portrait photo of a stylishly dressed man

"Over the years I suppose I have developed my look, I used to be more vintage and have modified this over time. I'd describe my current style as 'neo-mod' making it more contemporary. I don't feel comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt, I like to dress up a bit, as long as I feel comfortable."

To complement his pictures of Liverpool fashions from 1978 to 1982 featured in the Sound and Vision exhibition, photographer Francesco Mellina took portrait photographs of some of the city's most stylish people in 2009.

All of these photographs are featured here on the website. One of the photographs was also selected to be framed and included on the walls of the exhibition itself by fashion designer Kirsty Doyle, who very kindly judged the Picture This! competition.
