About the Author:
Chris Richards was born in Nottingham in 1962. His parents worked locally at the Raleigh Cycle factory and encouraged him to start taking photographs of the area during an art college course in 1979. Chris left Nottingham in 1980 to study Communication Design at Liverpool Polytechnic, but later returned to his home city to work as a graphic designer. At this time, he noticed the radical changes happening within the area and started to record them with his camera. Chris is now a freelance graphic designer, living in Nottingham who still enjoys photography, music and art.
