Shirley Baker research

Baker documented the working class of the north west in the 1950s. Her street photography was inspired by Henri Cartier Bresson and Robert Frank. The images she captured were not staged as she just caught people going about there business unaware that Baker was taking photographs. Her photographs of Salford are most known but she also went to Camden market to capture the punk scene. Baker is a great photographer for me to research as different classes of people is part of my project and i can get some useful tips and inspiration from her work.
