Here, Matt Dunn, Membership Officer, shares his enjoyment of Paul Trevor's fantastic photography exhibition and talking to our members.
On Thursday 12 May we welcomed our members to the Walker Art Gallery for the first special event of the new membership year – a look at the excellent new Paul Trevor exhibition, Like you’ve never been away.
Paul’s photographs of people in inner-city Liverpool were taken over six months in 1975. They have triggered a fascinating trip down memory lane for many who have seen them and Paul has even managed to track down a number of people whose photo he took all those years ago!
The exhibition opened to the public on 13 May as part of Light Night, but we were able to give our members a sneak preview the evening before and we were delighted that Paul Trevor joined us for the event. During an enthralling question and answer session with members, Paul gave a fascinating insight to the exhibition and shared stories with a captivated audience including myself!
As members made their way to the cafe for a cup of tea, I was able to speak to a few and was pleased that they had all thoroughly enjoyed the evening. One member, Cathy, noted that although the photos depicted a tough area of the city, all of the children looked to be happy and enjoying their freedom.
If you think that you would enjoy this sort of evening, why not become amember and help support the work of National Museums Liverpool at the same time? Give me a call on 0151 478 4157 and I’ll be happy to answer any questions. Alternatively, take a look at our membership web pages to find out more – we’re already looking forward to our next event at the new Museum of Liverpool so it’s a perfect time to join!
