Rob Bremner is a Documentary Photographer who left the small town of Wick in the far North of Scotland to persue his dreams of being a photographer. He landed in Liverpool where through divine providence he became a protoge of legendary photographers Tom Wood & Marin Parr.
But Rob had his own ideas and went on to capture some of the most iconic images of Liverpool in the 1980's and 1990's during a time when northern Britain, especially Liverpool were ground into the dirt by a heartless Tory government Regime.
In this episode we take a journey back in time to look over and discuss some of Rob's most iconic images.
