The book celebrates Todmorden’s unique identity through portraits, taken during the last quarter of the twentieth century, mainly in the subject’s workplace, home and personal environments, and represents a broad cross-section of the local community.
Containing nearly 200 black and white photographs carefully selected from Roger’s personal archive, each portrait is beautifully printed in duotone to give near facsimile reproduction. The images are complimented with a brief description of who, where and when they were taken with the hope they provoke discussion, stimulate interest in photography as a documentary medium and provide a common arts experience for Todmorden.
A sensitive homage to Roger Birch’s photography by his son Daniel, it includes a foreword by Martin Parr.
