Leroy Cooper | Toxteth, 1980s
Leroy Cooper’s arrest in 1981 was the tipping point of events and growing tensions that sparked the uprising in Toxteth.

“My photography is to remind us that history isn’t just composed of monumental events, fame hungry celebrities and the grubby goings on of corrupt, selfish politicians, but also the people like us, the everyday down to earth people.”
