Richard Davis

Richard Davis (B.1965) is a British Social Documentary and Portrait Photographer from Birmingham, UK.

Richard moved to Manchester in 1988 to study photography at the city’s Polytechnic. He was in the right place at the right time, not only to document the music explosion of Madchester, but also the comedy/spoken word boom which saw the introduction of the likes of Frank Sidebottom, Caroline Aherne, Steve Coogan and Lemn Sissay.

Richard lived in Hulme, which at the time was the largest public housing development in Europe. Many of his photographs document the everyday life on the estate, dominated by four large Brutalist inspired crescent shaped housing blocks.

Richard’s work had been exhibited by The British Culture Archive in London, Manchester & Berlin.
