Photograph by Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen, Girl on a Spacehopper, 1971.

L. Parker Stephenson presents Byker, an exhibition of the work of Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen: 

The Byker project focuses on a terraced district in the city of Newcastle upon Tyne that gives its name to the series and where Konttinen lived from 1969 to 1976. Her documentation sensitively and poignantly captures the social fabric of a working class community prior to its disintegration at the hands of urban redevelopment (in this case in the form of Ralph Erskine’s Byker Wall Estate). Byker was not only the subject of Konttinen’s first major project but also a place she returned to some thirty years later to focus on its new population using color photography.

The show is on view till May 11 — for more information, click here.
