About the Photographer | George Shepherd

George Shepherd was born in Eccles, Salford in 1933 to a working class family of third generation mill workers. Photography was his hobby from a young age, at around the age of 18 he started taking photos and carrying his camera wherever he went. From the early 1950s through to the mid 1970s George photographed, developed and printed his own images in black and white, using the spare bedroom in his house as a dark room.

George liked to take photos of the places, buildings and people of Salford and Manchester – places he had either visited as a child with his own father or where he had socialised and worked. George has said his photography was his own personal “memory lane.” 

George continued to take photographs right up until the 2000s.
