Plymouth is one of the South West of England’s most populated cities. From the time of the Industrial Revolution it has grown as a commercial shipping port, handling imports and passengers from the Americas, and exporting local minerals including: tin, copper, lime, china clay and arsenic. Bombed heavily during World War II, Plymouth still retains some of its fine architecture, although much was replaced (especially in the city centre) during the 50s and 60s by wide, parallel, modern boulevards and modernist buildings. Today, Plymouth remains a cultural and economic melting pot. Photographer Ryan Hardman has spent a year and a half photographing its architecture and its inhabitants.
