Tate presents the Tate Photography Series, a brand-new publishing program supplying an introduction to a few of the most crucial and amazing photographers at work today.
Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen— Born in Finland, Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen studied in London and then relocated to North East England in the 1960s. She has actually been based in Newcastle ever since, deeply rooted in the local community. Focusing on two of her photographic series, this book captures a working class area and reveals the terrible effect that the redevelopment of Newcastle’s East End had on the neighborhood, but likewise the moments of joy of the group trips to the beach.
Series One: Neighborhood and Uniformity, Includes Titles On: Liz Johnson Artur, Sheba Chhachhi, Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen and Sabelo Mlangeni
