Work was a bit mad, to say the least, last year and the use of images keeps on coming but this Liverpool Phil image is a highlight of the year that I've been waiting to publish for a while now. As well as working on my own book and the 366 book project, I was also working on the first complete history of the RLPO which includes lots of my photographs of the orchestra at work in 2008 as well as a series of portraits of individual members and this group shot taken over on The Wirral. The book is out at the end of March and will coincide with an exhibition of the photography in the Grand Foyer Bar at the hall itself. The Original Liverpool Sound is being published by Liverpool University Press and, even if I do say so myself, it looks great! I'll publish some more of these images nearer to the book being published.
