Mersey: the river that changed the world

An exhibition and book featuring the photographs of EPUK member Colin McPherson and celebrating one of the UK’s most important rivers is to be launched today in Liverpool.

An exhibition and book featuring the photographs of EPUK member Colin McPherson and celebrating one of the UK’s most important rivers is to be launched tonight in Liverpool.

“Mersey: the river that changed the world” features 80 photographs shot between May 2006 and summer this year, documenting the river from it’s source in the Peak District to its mouth in Liverpool

“The Mersey revealed so many secrets and surprises at every turn that it proved easy to photograph”, says McPherson. “Over the course of a year, I spent so long in the river’s company that I discovered how a modern river works. It provides work for some, recreation for others and shapes the environment around it. It is the inspiration for artists and rich historical resource for future generations.”

The exhibition can also be seen at the Boat Museum, Ellesmere Port from 1st March 2008 and the Lauriston Gallery, Sale Waterside from 21st April 2008 with further venues expected.

For more information see the exhibition website. To see more of Colin McPherson’s work documenting Scottish salmon netters, and his commentary on his work, see this EPUK Masterclass from earlier this year.
