A recent Guardian review led me to discover the work of Liverpool-based photographer Ken Grant, whose work - mainly in black and white - documents Merseyside working-class life between 1985 and 2009. I love the raw simplicity, harsh poetry and sometimes painful realism of these images, some of which feel timeless, many of which send a shiver down the spine. A new book of selections from his long-term project, No Pain Whatsoever, is about 'the quiet hours and days, relationships that ebb and flow, flourish or fail, and what we do - and, sometimes, about all we can do.'
