Maria Checkland

portrait photo of a stylishly dressed lady

"I just love dressing up, nice clothes shouldn't be saved only for best. I wear this kind of style everyday for work. I like making an effort because I think people don't make enough of an effort nowadays."

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.
