"Weeds of Wallasey is a series of black and white photographs taken on the Wirral in the Bidston Valley which encompasses a docks system leading to the river Mersey in the north west of England. I observed and documented the battle between nature and a post industrial blight, to express my own feelings about a landscape I grew up in, my roots, my weeds...to document a time and a place...the feelings for lost family members, the association of death and departure with my home town. Recently, Peel Holdings signed a multi-million pound property development deal in conjunction with Chinese partners to redevelop this area (“Wirral Waters”). These photographs belong to the”before”and if the after is all brand new mirrored high rise glass and chrome- there will always be weeds." - Chris Shaw
