Ron Davies has worked as a professional commercial and fine art photographer. He is well known for his photographs of Liverpool and the city’s environs, many of which have been published in annual reports, books, calendars and postcards. A major project since 2005 has been photographing Another Place, Antony Gormley’s installation of 100 Iron Men on Crosby Beach. He is inspired to portray the work of the artist in a way which captures the feel and spirit of the installation, and the atmosphere of the Sefton coastline.
