Regeneration Manchester: 30 Years of Storytelling (Hardcover)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
In the last three decades the Manchester City Region has shaken off its post-industrial malaise and confidently elbowed its way on to the international stage. Following significant regeneration projects in both the public and private sectors, the cities of Manchester and Salford are now considered by many as exemplars of urban revival. One photographer has made this turnaround the subject of his creative career. In Regeneration Manchester: 30 years of storytelling Len Grant charts each of his significant regeneration commissions, from the construction of iconic landmarks like the Bridgewater Hall and the Lowry to the creation of new neighbourhoods and the revival of historic districts. Drawing from his extensive photographic archive and private notebooks, Grant creates a personal story of an unprecedented period in his home city's recent history.
