Former London cabbie Max Green moved to Portsmouth 18 years ago and has been swept up by the colour, tradition and wacky aspects of the city.
He is also fond of its characters and as a photographer he has found much to fill his viewfinder over two decades.
From political demonstrations in Guildhall Square and the alternative antics at Love Albert Road Day to Morris dancers giving a colourful performance on Southsea seafront, he has gathered together his favourite shots and created a visual narrative of life in Portsmouth.
With the help of Tricorn Books in Old Portsmouth, Max has just published So This Is Portsmouth? a 142-page book of his work which proves that nostalgia doesn’t have to be about the distant past.
The book, published by Tricorn Books at £12.95, is available at Waterstones, Commercial Road, and online, and today I’ve chosen a selection of Max’s work featured in the book.
