An Innocent Eye: Jimmy Forsyth Book, by Anthony FlowersAn Innocent Eye - Jimmy Forsyth book written by Anthony Flowers. An Innocent Eye describes Jimmys life, considers how he is to be remembered, and includes a selection of his finest photographs held at Tyne & Wear Archives. Jimmy will always be associated on Tyneside with the west end of Newcastle, and particularly with Scotswood Road. The book also makes available, for the first time, an autobiographical fragment written by Jimmy in 1989.
Jimmy's remarkable photographs from the 1950s and 1960s were first exhibited in January 1979, under the title Scotswood Road with a Box Camera. Newcastles Side Gallery recognised in Jimmys photographs a unique record of vanishing working-class culture and determined to bring his work to a wider public. The result was the very successful Scotswood Road book and exhibition in 1986. Jimmy became an overnight sensation, receiving in March 1987 the Halina Award for an outstanding body of work. He continued to take photographs of his favourite subjects until his death 16th July, 2009. Written by Anthony Flowers and Published by Tyne Bridge Publishing.
128 pages paperback, illustrated throughout.
