You’re Welcome to View Shirley Baker Photography in Manchester
Shirley Baker photography in Manchester will impress and delight you if you are a fan of photographic artwork. There is something special about a photograph that is not posed. Other than being a record of times past, it is also an attractive art medium. Many people associate art with painting or drawing. However, photographs are as widely popular. We specialise in Northern Art. This is a genre that encompasses 20th century works of industrial and urban landscapes particular to the North West of England. Not only are these landscapes celebrated, but also the men and women who lived here. This is clearly seen in the images depicted by Shirley Baker’s photographic artworks.
This genre was best encapsulated by L.S. Lowry’s works wherein he represented the spirit of working class life, the mills and the factories. In Manchester, Shirley Baker photography is as poignant as any other Northern artist’s work. In fact, she has high recognition for the street art she created. These include children playing, old ladies sitting and chatting and life in general. Born in Salford, the artist fell in love with photography at a young age. Through her varied career, her photographic street scenes remained her best. She was also the first omen in post-war Britain to receive a qualification in photography. Her distinct style and her love of spontaneous photos have led to her photography artwork being appreciated throughout the world.
