Tom Wood: Photographs 1973 - 2013
Gallery One: 8 March 2013 - 16 June 2013

Tom Wood has taken photographs almost every day for the last 40 years. The resulting, remarkable bodies of work now form the basis of this new retrospective exhibition, his first in the UK.

Most of Wood's work has been taken in Liverpool and on Merseyside, where he has lived for much of the last four decades. He has photographed on the streets, in pubs, clubs and markets, workplaces, parks and outside football grounds.

Wood's photographs are not organised in series, where one project has a start and end date. Instead, he works daily on an unfolding, diary-like recording of his observations and encounters. He will spend many years returning to particular places and studying them in an attempt to refine and distil the essence of them in his photographs. The result is a constantly evolving celebration of the pleasures of photography and its potential to transform its subjects.

Tom Wood: Photographs 1973 - 2013 is a collaboration with The Photographers' Gallery London and has been curated by Greg Hobson, Curator of Photographs at this Museum, and Stefanie Braun, Senior Curator at The Photographers' Gallery.
