Shirley Baker Photography in Manchester
View world-class Shirley Baker Photography in Manchester at Colourfield Gallery. We specialise in the Northern Art school that embodies the spirit and ethos of this region. This term refers to a unique style of gritty 20th century artists who portray industrial, urban landscapes and the people who inhabit them. The North West of England is a subject that is particularly focused on in this genre. The works of LS Lowry, one of the pioneers in this category of art, encapsulates the working class life of the men, women and children of the region. Our gallery has worked tirelessly for more than three decades to popularize Northern Art by building enduring relationships with artists and collectors. We seek out new talent and help to nurture, guide and showcase it so that art lovers across the world can enjoy it.
Our website provides a glimpse of all that we have to offer. In Manchester, Shirley Baker photography appeals to viewers and collectors alike. Baker’s work shows spontaneous, unposed, candid shots. The camera freezes moments of joy, along with portraits of the sublime as well as the ridiculous. It provides the viewer with hours of endless discovery. She believes that the art of conveying the ordinary, everyday lives of people can evoke emotions much more than formal and official photographs. Her works also record heart-breaking images of urban poverty and street portraiture. As a freelance writer, photographer and academic, she played a role in documenting contemporary scenes. She was the only practising street photographer in Britain during the post-war era.
