L8 Unseen revealed the stories and experiences of a diverse range of people from the Liverpool 8 community. The exhibition uncovered the spirit and heritage of the area through filmed interviews and striking large-scale photographs taken by renowned photographer Othello De’Souza-Hartley.

The photographs were captured in buildings and places which have a special significance to L8 - many were founded on the proceeds of the city’s international trading links and the transatlantic slave trade.

The exhibition also included a range of historical images of L8 from the Liverpool 8 Old Photographs Facebook group, The Granby Street Archive project and Museum of Liverpool photographic collections.

Visitors also got involved and shared their own photographs and stories of L8 through the L8 Create project - some of these were included in the exhibition.
