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 […]

ST.MARY’S PARSONAGE, MANCHESTER 3.29AM

MANCHESTER HISTORIES FESTIVAL 2016

MANCHESTER HISTORIES FESTIVAL 2016 Over the weekend of June 4th & 5th I’ll be taking part in the Manchester Histories Festival. I’ve created an event page HERE. I’m particularly looking forward to seeing my pictures exhibited on specially commissioned A-boards, with the help of NOMA. They’ll be laid out as a photo trail along a route which starts at Aspin Lane and finishes at Sadler’s Yard. I’m all for showing work outside of the context of a gallery as when […]
