Byker Revisited by Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen.

In 2003 photographer Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen returned to Byker, the location of her seminal work of the 1970s when she documented a community living under threat of demolition and redevelopment. Her photographs from this period trace the changes in the intervening years since her first visit.
