This book documents and records how a community in Byker has changed and is a follow-up to Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen’s first book: Byker.
The book, which is the result of a six year project, is full of candid portraits of residents in their homes and shows you how very different people can be.
The foreword for the book is written by Newcastle-born playwright and screenwriter Lee Hall and it sits well against the stark contrast of images decorating the many pages.
If you're from the area you'll probably appreciate the book more than others but this isn't to say it can't be enjoyed by anyone else. For anyone interest in candid shots which document unseen community life, you'll think it's a jolly good read.
