“You Live With Us, We Live With You”

I’ve been out a couple of times this week, producing pictures for this project. On Sunday evening I was down at the Corn Exchange. The skater kids left behind quite some mess and it’s possible I witnessed a couple having an affair, as they seemed very nervous when I set up near them.  At dawn on Wednesday I was at the Vita building, which is part of the First Street area. The photographic part of the project will be finished […]

FROM TRINITY TO THE CRESCENT

FROM APRIL 13TH 2016 ‘From Trinity To The Crescent’ is the second Not Quite Light Project. It will explore the area around the River Irwell, which is used as the physical border between the cities of Manchester and Salford. This will take me from just below Strangeways along Chapel Street and Deansgate, and as far as the Crescent, as the A6 heads away from the city centre. The history between Salford and Manchester is fascinating, and illustrates my view that […]
