An iconic collection of photographs spanning five decades which exposes the true character of Northern England. Sefton’s trademark style of poignant photojournalism edged with humanity and a black Northern humour utterly captures the changing soul of the North.

This is a world of stunning contrasts where bingo, black puddings and slums rub shoulders with true icons like LS Lowry, Morrissey, George Best and Coronation Street. The photos shot in the 1960s were brought together as a major exhibition at Proud Gallery in central London as: ‘Sod Carnaby Street: The Grit and Glamour of Manchester in the Swinging 60s.’ See The Guardian’s feature about Sefton’s exhibition.

Sefton’s collection has been brought together for the first time and published as a major work by Ebury – Northerners: Portrait of a no-nonsense people. Watch a report about Sefton and Northerners on BBC Two’s The Culture Show.

Exhibition-sized prints can be ordered.
