9 March 2010 by Lucy

Tomorrow, the National Conservation Centre is hosting another free talk as part of the public programme of events for the new Lewis’s Fifth Floor exhibition, running until 30 August.

 

Lewis’s Fifth Floor: A Department Story is the first solo exhibition by Liverpool photographer Stephen King, and at 12pm tomorrow Stephen can be found in the exhibition space talking all about the exhibition and the overall Lewis’s project.

Lewis’s Fifth Floor exhibition photographer, Stephen King

 

Stephen has a fascinating background in photography, having begun taking photographs when he was ten years old, and developing this passion further by using his other passion, skateboarding as the focus for his work.

 

In 1998, during his final year of study, he co-founded Document Magazine and was senior photographer and photo editor for ten years, undertaking international assignments and travelling extensively during this time.

 

His photography practice includes documentary and portraiture, which is displayed fantastically in the Lewis’s exhibition. So come along, have a look, and hear from the man behind the stunning images of the fifth floor.
