Photographer gets photographed

Photographer Bernard Fallon’s exhibition, which opens at the National Conservation Centre on Saturday, is called The Long Way Home, and he has travelled a very long way to come home for the opening this week. Although he was born in Liverpool, Bernard now lives in Los Angeles, where I bet it’s raining much less than it is here today.

His incredibly atmospheric photos of Liverpool 40 years ago are a world away from the Californian sunshine. However, his humourous reminiscences in the exhibition show that it’s clearly a time he remembers with great affection.

This afternoon Bernard had a role reversal when photographer Tracey O’Neill took his picture for the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo. He has a packed schedule of press calls and catching up with friends and family over the next few days, but has promised to return to to give a free public tour of the exhibition on Saturday 3 March at 1pm – see the National Conservation Centre What’s On page for details. If that’s busy he says he’ll do another one afterwards as well. Do try to pop along if you can.
