Westography by Warren Kirk


I am always in search of inspiration when it comes to my artwork and photography. The creative mind never seems to switch off. So I love to look at photography books.⠀

Westography by Warren Kirk gives the reader “exclusive access to the homes and businesses of the last of a generation, capturing once-bustling industrial areas and the old inhabitants of back-street suburbia, along with garages, barber shops, fish and chip shops, milk bars, front gardens, sheds, and everything in between.”⠀

Warren Kirk’s photography in this book is fascinating. As a child of the 70s, I recognise many aspects of this suburban landscape. For me, there is something comforting about these vintage scenes but also a slight sadness that nothing ever stays the same.
