More than 40 years ago photographer Tricia Porter went to Liverpool to create a set of pictures celebrating life in the city.

She visited Toxteth at a time when the area was beset by problems caused by poverty and racism was rife.

Tricia returned to document how communities have grown and changed, and some of the poeple she captured on film four decades ago were there to welcome her back.
