'No hidden agendas, no exploitation, just a short cut to knowing what it was like to be there.' – Martin Parr
Rooted in autobiography, and made over a fifteen year period, Ken Grant's photographs offer us a unique insight into the Liverpool community in which he was born. As the buoyancy of Liverpool's industrial river-trades slips away into history, there are few guarantees for lives that are improvised and uncertain. Away from the defining nature of the workplace, Grant dwells on togetherness, and the intimate encounters of family life. With eloquence and beauty, The Close Season bears witness to the tender urgencies of kinship and survival.
